DAGNode Links[] sort order

Is the Links[] array in a DAGNode guaranteed to preserve order? Or does it (or might it in the future) get sorted like in GitTree objects?

@agentofuser I think we already saw this come back in different orders, I don’t think it’s deterministic.

@icidasset I think you bumped into this or might remember?

The order should be preserved according to the spec:

It’s preserved sorted, but not in insertion order, right?

elements must be sorted in ascending order by their Name values, which are compared by bytes rather than as strings.

So I can’t make a DAGNode that has links [b, a] and that’s different from [a, b], correct?

Yeah correct, always sorted by Name
