[Created] (MNGSITE-441) Definre ordering of tokens

John Robert Fallows (Jira)
Elliotte Rusty Harold created MNGSITE-441:
---------------------------------------------

             Summary: Definre ordering of tokens
                 Key: MNGSITE-441
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNGSITE-441
             Project: Maven Project Web Site
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Elliotte Rusty Harold


On [https://maven.apache.org/pom.html#Version_Order_Specification] we use the terms " {{lexicographical order}}" and "alphabetical order". Neither is defined, and they need to be.

 

For example does "PPP" sort before, after, or the same as "ppp"? I don't know.

 

Lexicogrpahic order also has more than one reasonable definition: [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lexicographic_order]

 

Perhaps we can simply rewrite the version order section to not use these terms as long as we're clear about what does happen.
