Sort order of vignettes in help index and CRAN

Thomas Petzoldt
Dear developers,

there seems to be an inconsistency in the sort order of package
vignettes between (1) the "Overview of user guides and package
vignettes" in the help index of package itself:

FME.pdf
FMEdyna.pdf
FMEmcmc.pdf
FMEother.pdf
FMEsteady.pdf

and (2) the sort order of CRAN:

FMEdyna.pdf
FMEmcmc.pdf
FMEother.pdf
FME.pdf            <--------------
FMEsteady.pdf


It looks like CRAN ignores the dot so that the "p" from pdf appears
between the "o" and "s" of the other two.

It would be nice if this can be made consistent. I would prefer if CRAN
would use the \VignetteIndexEntry , but file name ordering (without the
extension) is also ok.
