Is there a Schema?

Is there any form of detailed documentation of this XML? I mean a DTD, a Schema, or a textual description of the possibilities?

--UsagiYojimbo 09:50, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

These are the DTD's:

   * Component: [1]
   * Module: [2]
   * Plugin: [3]
   * Template: [4]

--Darko74 11:18, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

dev.joomla.org was shut down: these are new URLs for manifests:

   * Component: [5]
   * Module: [6]
   * Plugin: [7]
   * Template: [8]

Deletion discussion

As response to the request for deletion:
I have the impression there is much more information on this page about the xml file than there is on the proposed page. So, if everything is transferred there, I am for deletion, otherwise against.
Or maybe even better to take the xml file example out of the proposed page, put it here and link to it or doc-include it (or what's it called?), so that the component page is less crowded and the xml file can be found separately in the wiki search? E-motiv (former E-builds) (talk)
