== Stretch ==
Gitlab 8.13.11 is available in stretch, but it is not receiving any security updates. So it is recommend to update to newer versions from unstable or stretch-backports.

{{{
# apt install gitlab
}}}

== Unstable ==
Gitlab 11.5.4 is available in unstable (no open security issues).

== Stretch Backports ==
Gitlab 10.8.7 is waiting in backports-NEW (still affected by some security issues).

Gitlab 11.5.4 is available for stretch-backports via personal repo of gitlab maintainer (no open security issues) from https://people.debian.org/~praveen/gitlab

''Note 1: Official stretch-backports repo is also required for this to work. See [[Backports]].''
''Note 2: https://gitlab.debian.net is running on this version.''
