Search results on hex.pm based on `updated_at` field return weird results

hex

#1

URL for the query: https://hex.pm/packages?page=2&sort=updated_at

screenshot search results

screenshot uuid package, that was last updated on Sep. 30, 2017.

Not sure if there was something else in hex, that triggered an change on the updated_at field…

It is sorting on when the package was updated last in the database, not when the last version was published. I agree that it is unexpected so please open an issue on https://github.com/hexpm/hexpm.

OK, it seems to be a design issue then. Thanks for the clarification!

I have opened a new issue: https://github.com/hexpm/hexpm/issues/769, hope this wont be a big thing.
