Yep, you're right. For Qlustar that problem is mitigated by the fact
that we build our own slurm packages and backport possible security
fixes to the versions that we support (aka Debian style). Anyway Qlustar
12 should be out sometime later this year with Slurm 20.2. Given that
Qlustar 11 will live for another 3 years, it's very likely that we will
move Slurm to 20.2 there too.
