I think I just restored the old behavior, what we had before is :
1.0a < 1.0alpha < 1.0b < 1.0beta < 1.0c < 1.0pre < 1.0rc < 1.0
And as far as I can see, it never caused problems to openssh.
Both old and new behaviors worked fine with it, because we always had :
4.3p1 < 4.3p2 < 4.4p1
According to the cvs history :
and the source archives :
the scheme was always X.Y[.Z]pN .
Now, maybe 1.0alpha < 1.0beta < 1.0pre < 1.0rc < 1.0 < 1.0a < 1.0b <
1.0c would be better, but we never had this behavior, and implementing
would be (much?) more complex than what we have now.
