We should use the latest stable release of npm, this is the v6 branch, the current version is 6.1.0

Using a standardised version of npm allows developers contributing to core to have a common local configuration eliminating potential lock file compatibilities that can occur when using npm v5 vs v6

This will also require a systems request for the build server to be updated to npm 6.1.0, currently, the build server is using npm 5.5.1, see

Example Systems Request:

Use npm 6.1.0 on build server

Hi, as per #44245-core could we please have the npm version 6.1.0 release installed on

This will be needed for WordPress 5.0 & Gutenberg (once merged) for build scripts to operate.

Currently we have npm 5.5.1
