     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNGSITE-441?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Elliotte Rusty Harold updated MNGSITE-441:
    Summary: Define ordering of tokens  (was: Definre ordering of tokens)

> Define 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
>            Priority: Major
> 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.
