I was hoping to be able to package all node dependencies of gitlab in main,
though the sheer number of them made ftp masters to ignore them. I understand
that kind of numbers are quite intimidating to deal with, so I have already
moved gitlab to contrib and install these node modules directly from npm
But even that cannot move to buster because npm is not yet in buster, which is
also stuck in NEW. So I'm thinking of adding yarn also to contrib, bundling all
dependencies. If the node modules in NEW starts moving, hopefully when next
batch of ftp assistants are on boarded, we can get it to main.
This will also help me in backporting gitlab 10 to stretch as backporting
security fixes to 8.13 is pretty challenging.
