Issue #3 resolved

parse_version post-release tags do not work as expected

Guy Rozendorn
repo owner created an issue

According to http://packages.python.org/distribute/setuptools.html?highlight=tag:

from pkg_resources import parse_version parse_version('2.1-rc2') < parse_version('2.1')


but both setuptools 0.6c11 and 0.6c12dev_r88795 show that: In [7]: parse_version('2.1-rc2') < parse_version('2.1') Out[7]: True

So pkg_resources acts the opposite of what the documentation says.
