Bug Description

From the github page:
jQuery UI Touch Punch is a small hack that enables the use of touch events on sites using the jQuery UI user interface library.

Touch Punch works by using simulated events to map touch events to their mouse event analogs.

This library was last updated in 2014. Given the proliferation of touch devices since then it seems maybe it might have been superseded? Or maybe we don't need it anymore? We should investigate whether we need this old library still.

Earliest that this can be looked into: After the 20.10 release.

One thing to check would be to remove the library and see if touch on mobile still works.
