Hi all,

[I am aware that this has probably been discussed before, but I fail to
find the right discussion in the archive. Please point me to it if you
know where it is.]

I am currently preparing for a new major upstream version of my package
cacti (which I hope will be able to meet the stretch freeze). Upstream
has already for a long time been using jquery, and I have been able to
use the Debian package as my dependency. The next major version "needs
to avoid jQueryUI 1.2 as it's currently a hot stinking mess."¹

AFAIUI due to the nature of how the javascript eco-system works, it is
not trivial to "follow" newer versions. Could you please let me know
what the roadmap² of the javascript maintainer team is for the jquery
package and to jquery related packages. I see there is a 3.0 version in
experimental, but it is unclear to the outside world (and to me) when
that will migrate to unstable. Should I instead prepare for a
convenience copy of jquery (and related scripts), which I would really
hate to do?

PS: please CC me on replies, I am not subscribed.
