[Updated] (MNGSITE-441) Define ordering of tokens

Herve Boutemy (Jira)

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

Elliotte Rusty Harold updated MNGSITE-441:
------------------------------------------
    Description:
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.

Lexicographic 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.
