Bug#539081: DDPO: Inconsistent alphabetical order

Package: qa.debian.org
Severity: minor


There is some inconsistency in how qa.debian.org handles packages in
alphabetical order. By default when I load qa.d.o, it seems to order
packages in alphabetical order. However, packages of the name: "X"
have a lower alphabetical order than "X-Y". In my case, pekwm is
listed before pekwm-themes. However, if I actually click on the
"Source Name" tab, it orders the packages in alphabetical order by
source name. This time, it treats "X-Y" packages as alphabetically
lower than "X" packages. So, in my case, pekwm-themes is now listed
before pekwm. This seems like a mistake since it seems like the
default alphabetical order should be the same as explicit alphabetical
