I think it is time to deprecate opam 1.2.0. What do you think?

See https://github.com/ocaml/opam-repository/pull/6888 for a recent issue: it doesn’t understand the `pinned` variable. This could be fixed by adding a rewriting layer between 1.2.2 and 1.2.0 and adding a redirection based on the version number (we already do that for opam 1.1) but that’s a lot of efforts for not much gains. So I’m in favour of simply not supporting 1.2.0 anymore.

If you are still using 1.2.0 please complain now :-)
