Are there docs somewhere that describe the meaning of the fields in the DNN XML file? For example, what is the meaning of the iconfile element for a control? A complete set of docs on this file would be helpful.

take a look at the template.dnn.txt file in components\resourceinstaller , it has some comments which should help. The "DotNetNuke Portal Template.doc" in the documentation folder goes into good depth on most of the scripting capabilities, including *.template
and *.dnn files.

there is additional information in the "Creating Your DNN Distribution Definition" of the DotNetNuke Module Developers Guide.doc in your documentation folder.
You can also use dotnetnuke to generate PA's, including the .dnn files for you. Simply log in as host, and go to host->module definitions .Click the pencil to the left of your module, and then
use the 'create private assembly' option at the bottom. Finally, if you're creating .dnn files by hand you can use the module definition validator at the bottom of the host->module definitions page to test them (it uses the various xsd files to to validate)
