Re: Summary: dpkg and alpha/beta versioning



How about the following:

Introduce new tokens, called "alpha", "beta" and "pre", with sort ordering

alpha < beta < pre < '' < number.

We then have (taking as example the 2.0 pre Linux kernel series):

1.3.89 < .. < 1.3.99 < 2.0pre1 < 2.0pre2 < .. < 2.0pre17 < 2.0.0
