Seemingly the urgency has been increased a little bit, as there's also a new
topic warning:

atum17:~/mysql> git review
remote: WARNING: deprecated topic syntax. Use %topic=TOPIC instead
remote: Pushing to refs/publish/* is deprecated, use refs/for/* instead.

It would be nice to have a new version for buster, given that Gerrit is
not unlikely to remove support for refs/publish/* entirely before buster+1 is
released. The upgrade seems to be trivial (uupdate worked directly).
