      Description

      In MDL-60503 the LTS version of Node has been locked to 8.9[.x], "Carbon".

      At the end of March 8.11 has been released due to big security issues: https://github.com/nodejs/node/releases/tag/v8.11.0 => https://nodejs.org/en/blog/vulnerability/march-2018-security-releases/.
      While there is no security impact in Moodle, we should update the pinned version to the latest 8.x LTS (Carbon), at least for 3.5, since it does match with 8.9[.x] no more.
