      Description

      Maven allows unbounded version ranges of the form: [1.2.3,] meaning version 1.2.3 or any later version. When Ivy interprets POMs with this format it causes errors like:
      [ivy:resolve] module not found: invalid.example#somelib;[1.2.3,]
      [ivy:resolve] ==== m2-local: tried
      [ivy:resolve] C:\Documents and Settings\joeuser\.m2\repository/invalid/example/somelib/[1.2.3,]/somelib-[1.2.3,].pom
      [ivy:resolve] – artifact invalid.example#somelib;[1.2.3,]!somelib.jar:
      [ivy:resolve] C:\Documents and Settings\joeuser\.m2\repository/invalid/example/somelib/[1.2.3,]/somelib-[1.2.3,].jar
      [ivy:resolve] ==== mapsrv: tried
      [ivy:resolve] http://some-repo.example.invalid/artifactory/repo/invalid/example/somelib/[1.2.3,]/somelib-[1.2.3,].pom

      Note that unbounded ranges like [1.2.3,) behave correctly. I imagine there could be similar problems for ranges like [,1.0], but I haven't tested them in either Ivy or Maven.

      Here's some information about Maven version ranges, it doesn't explicitly list [1.2.3,] as a possibility, but Maven accepts it as a valid range nonetheless.
