I still believe that the wording doesn't convey that. Maybe an example will clarify what I mean. There is a directory foo/bar and a regular file foo/bar/quux in it. Now in Manifest there are these entries: IGNORE foo/bar DATA foo/bar/quux <size> <checksums> The spec says: "It is an error to specify another entry for a file matching ``IGNORE``, or one of its subdirectories." However, file foo/bar/quux neither matches IGNORE nor is a subdirectory of it. Ulrich
