Please use this topic to suggest agenda items for our weekly meetings.

This week we will be having an Outreach meeting followed by a the weekly Dev meeting.

I have two issues for the fortnightly Outreach meeting that have been brought to me by members of the community. 

1) Revitalize our presence on LinkedIn - https://github.com/backdrop-ops/backdrop-community/issues/17 - we have had an offer to help with this and just need to remove some roadblocks.

2) Another member of the community made a proposal that we better use our forums to promote and discuss individual modules. See: https://github.com/backdrop-ops/backdrop-community/issues/18

An issue, actually good news, to consider for the dev meeting: jQuery UI 1.13.0 released!

For quite a while there was no real maintenance of that project, but now things get moving again.

We have an ongoing issue for these updates. Note that the 1.13.0 update also contains small security fixes, so we should update soon.

One focus of the new team is to get jQuery UI compatible with more recent jQuery versions, which will also be helpful for this issue (upgrade jQuery). That might be a 2.x task, though.

I took a look at how jQuery UI gets pulled in, but didn't get far. Are there instructions regarding how that's done? Backdrop ships with individual compressed js files - which differ in naming from sources.

A nice development: thanks to some great work by @docwilmot, you can now put tags in .info files and they will appear on projects on backdropcms.org; and you can include a theme screenshot and colors in themes and they will show up as well.
