There are a number of third-party libraries distributed with Moodle. Before the major release, the available versions of these libraries should be reviewed.
- Check the list at https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Moodle_libraries_credits, which should be up to date with lib/thirdpartylibs.xml and other thirdpartylibs.xml files distributed around Moodle.
- Add any newly incorporated libraries into the list
- Check the available versions of each library
- If there is a significant new version and updating is recommended, the new version should be integrated by creating a sub-task to this issue and processing it through integration independently. If there is a readme_moodle.txt file with the plugin, this describes the customisations made for Moodle.
- has to be done before
