French term or phrase: indice
In a list of limitations that have to be taken into account by the client architecture when handling e-mail:

Les diverses méthodes utilisées, encore aujourd’hui, pour le protocole POP3, dûes au fait qu’il y a eu plusieurs versions de spécification du protocole POP3 (sans changement de son ***indice***)

I've found a huge number of possible translations for "indice" here, so I'd appreciate it if someone could put me on the right track.

Explanation:
This means that the protocol has various definitions that cannot be set apart by different revision numbers, which is confusing because one cannot tell which version is more recent or which one is implemented in a specific case.
"indice" is a poor french wording here, should be "numéro de version" or "numéro de révision", but there is also a mispelling on "dues", so probably the writer is not so reliable
