Fixes #1562: fixes version of trim-newlines #1563

Hi maintainers! I'm Ivan and I work at Bison Trails. We're doing an internal hackathon this week.

Our team loves vscode-gitlens, but it got flagged during a recent security review. Our team voted to use our hackathon time to patch vulnerabilities in our favorite OSS tools and specifically to try to get vscode-gitlens approved for usage within our organization.

What's here:

  • version of trim-newlines dependency is forced to resolve to the safe, patched version of the package


These changes should improve vscode-gitlens's security posture. We identified these vulnerabilities using Salus and the OSSF scorecard. The specific issues I am hoping to address here are:

  • Regular expression Denial of service described in this advisory

Thank you so much for your work maintaining vscode-gitlens, and thank you for taking the time to look at these proposed changes!


  • I have followed the guidelines in the Contributing document
  • My changes follow the coding style of this project
  • My changes build without any errors or warnings - there is a warning because change forces newer version of trim-newlines package included through devDependencies dependencies. Newer version is properly patched, and backward compatible. I haven't found a way to replace direct dependency which would have updated trim-newlines transitive dependency.
  • My changes have been formatted and linted
  • My changes include any required corresponding changes to the documentation
  • My changes have been rebased and squashed to the minimal number (typically 1) of relevant commits
  • My changes have a descriptive commit message with a short title, including a Fixes $XXX - or Closes #XXX - prefix to auto-close the issue that your PR addresses

trim-newlines is a transitive dependency which is present in a
dependency tree through imagemin-webp and node-sass.

Version of trim-newlines which is referenced by those pacakges has a
security advisory

Neither imagemin-webp nor node-sass have version which depend on patched
version of trim-newlines. And at least node-sass is not maintained any

Under current circumstances the only way to fix this is to force
trim-newlines version via "resolutions". As interface of the package is
backward compatible and does not break anything I believe it is a right
thing to do.
