Sorry to post again that mail, but it seems that this is the last remaining issue for the versionning proposal.
Phillip, could you check my proposal for your development versions of postreleases use case ?

I don't see how it can manage, e.g. a development version of a postrelease, with an SVN rev or date stamp on it. Such versions might not be found on PyPI or on RPMs, but would be needed in development.
So, instead of having 'dev' and 'post', we would require a third case for "pos+dev" version
so (dev|post)N+ could become, ((dev|post)N+)|(postN+devN+)
1.0.dev459 < 1.0 < 1.0.post456dev463 < 1.0.post456 < 1.0.post489
(Btw, the wiki page pseudo-regex doesn't match what the code actually parses, either.)
i'll check it thx
