Wrong order of list in guide

I don't usually pick up on these things, but for some reason this one caught my attention. In The Perl Monks Guide to the Monastery there is a list:

  • Sections
  • Information
  • Find Interesting Nodes
  • Additional Miscellany
Followed by the segments:
  • Information
  • Sections
  • Find Interesting Nodes
  • Additional Miscellany
They are clearly out of order, and even if it is an unordered list I think it should be contextual and appear in the order the segments does, or vice versa.

Update: Thanks to ++shmem for the useful info.

    No need to write a root node in such a case; a /msg to SiteDocClan suffices.

    Also, that page should be linked as [id://972] - The Perl Monks Guide to the Monastery - to allow for any of (www.)?perlmonks.(org|com). linking to .com takes those who browse .org to a page where they are not logged in (wrong cookie). See What shortcuts can I use for linking to other information?.

    update: order of links fixed.

    update: marcussen++ for noticing ;-)

[shmem]: sub wanted { push @files, $File::Find::name if $File::Find::name =~/\.mp3$/ }
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, that is understandable! The two examples in File::Find don't make sense to me on a quick glance.
[marioroy]: LA if the find worked from Unix command line, or does it not. Likely a quoting issue inside Perl qx.
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, the find worked fine at the command line.
[marioroy]: LA, yeah. than there's no reason why it cannot work inside qx. But chatting is hard in PM. I cannot see the code now.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: sometimes a quick glance isn't enough.
