GitLab config: '.gitlab-ci.yml' does not specify the exact version of all dependencies
To fully benefit from the advantages of CI/CD, developers need to follow certain principles. Many of these principles have been introduced in the landmark book Continuous Delivery: Reliable Software Releases through Build, Test, and Deployment Automation and are nowadays widely accepted. One of these principles is:
A build configuration should always specify exact versions of external libraries to make a build reproduceable. A lack of exact versions can cause problems when new versions of a dependency become available in the future that might introduce incompatible changes.
Problem: We analyzed your project and found that the following dependency in .gitlab-ci.yml (line 40) violates this principle, because it does not define an exact version (Version specifier missing).
Suggested Fix: Specify the exact version.
