Bug Description

As noted in bug 1771371, the web staff client stopped building successfully once Angular 1.7.0 became available. Pinning AngularJS to 1.6.x worked around the problem, but this bug is for fixing the breakage.

Evergreen 3.0+

A cursory glance through https://docs.angularjs.org/guide/migration#migrating-from-1-6-to-1-7 didn't turn up any removed constructs that Evergreen appears to be using directly.

Error messages in the console include this:

Upon inspection, the line in question in the vendor bundle is a copy of AngularJS 1.5.11, which is being brought in by ngToast. Per https://github.com/tameraydin/ngToast/issues, ngToast appears to no longer be actively maintained; an issue requesting bumping up the version flag to allow AngularJS 1.6 has not been acted upon. I'll investigate this thread further.

I've convinced myself that updating ngToast to simply state that it's compatible with AngularJS 1.7 suffices to (1) remove the extra pulling in of AngularJS 1.5 into the bundle, (2) ensure that tests pass and the web staff client bundle works, and (3) that toasts are still toasty.

I'll make a pull request against ngToast and hope for the best.
