Fedora (which is our role model) doesn't and the vulnerability is not
deemed that critical by the upstream maintainers:

https://lists.mindrot.org/pipermail/openssh-unix-dev/2019-January/037475.html

Fedora's 7.9p1 has an additional patch for CVE-2018-20685 only.

I was planning to wait for OpenSSH 8.0.  It was originally slated
for end of January or at least February, but there's no hint from the
upstream maintainers yet in terms of the (obviously changed) release
planning for 8.0.

I can push a 7.9 with the Fedora patch for CVE-2018-20685 if that
helps.
