Does the Package Index determine order of policies as well?

I know it determines the order in which packages are installed in an imaging configuration, but does it determine the order in which policies are run?

Our testing has shown that no, it doesn't change the policy order.

@bpavlov the policy installation order is determined alphabetically. So if you have a policy named "A - Install Adobe", a policy named "B - Install Barcode Pro", and a policy named "1 - Install 1Password", the policies would execute in this order:

Install 1Password
Install Adobe
Install Barcode Pro

Policies really need priorities same as packages, I imagine there is probably already a feature request for it somewhere...
