Currently there is no easy way to check what version is provided.
For jQuery the easiest way is probably to fill it in from JS; $.fn.jquery holds the version number.
Can we be careful about adding things here? I remember the last time we went overboard with adding version numbers...
I don't remember last time... or was it trying to add many OS packages to the list? Just having the jQuery version number would suffice for me.
It started with just adding one version number. And before you knew it, we were shelling out to imagemagick and diff3 to put all kinds of version numbers in that little table.
It is a slippery slippery slope :)
I could sorta see the benefit.. But we could also have a table on mw.org that for each MW version, we listed versions of major libraries (jQuery, jQuery.ui) that are released with MediaWiki

We could maybe add only versions of the code that the users load/use/execute directly (what is there besides JS?) and leave all back-end dependencies hidden?

For what is worth, this is how https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Version looks today:
MediaWiki 1.23wmf10 (7a69cda)
PHP 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.9+wmf1 (apache2handler)
If there is an agreement on this request, then it could be marked as EASY.
