Hi list,

I'm writing a dselect-like tool for NetBSD binary package repositories, 
and was wondering if there is an 'official' reference / code blob about:
   * how package version strings are to be compared;
   * how requirement strings are to be expanded in a boolean expression.

pkg_info(1)'s man page gives strong hints about this, but is not really 
a spec :)
