Actually I don't think that is a good idea. The release cycle starts
again after buster is ready, and there is enough time to get dojo in
sync with what is in LedgerSMB. Also it is the general policy in Debian to
use the available packaged version instead of including it in the
application package. This is for various good reasons (maintenance, security,
package size, ...).
