Git v2.37 Dependency

Hello there,
I am currently upgrading my gitlab instance from 15.4 (yes, I know I am late) and the upgrade docs leave me a bit confused about the new dependency on newer git versions

Upgrading GitLab | GitLab says: Git 2.37.0 and later is required by Gitaly
CentOS 7 does not offer newer versions than 1.8

Does this dependency apply to the Omnibus version or is there something I need to do about the dependency?

Thank you

The gitlab package includes git. You do not need to install it from the CentOS repositories or from any other distros repositories for that matter. I used to have git installed from the distro repositories on my gitlab server, but removed it.

The packaged version is in /opt/gitlab/embedded/bin/git
