this error message does suck. The problem here is that <dir> tags must be first, followed by <file> tags. This enforces a simple visual layout where directories are nested first, and then reduce to files. The decision was arbitrary, it could just as easily have been the other way.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the end of next Sunday (CET) on pear.php.net. In case this was a pear.php.net website problem, the change will show up on the website in short time. Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PEAR better.

Can this be changed? Structuring the file in this way is far clearer.. I list all the core files in my package first, then later on the examples and docs etc...
