Hackage complains about data-dir

The new version of Hoogle uses data-dir in the main section of the
Cabal file. http://code.haskell.org/hoogle/hoogle.cabal

Uploading to hackage gives:

400 Error in upload
hoogle- Unknown fields: data-dir (line 19)
Fields allowed in this section:
    name, version, cabal-version, build-type, license, license-file,
    copyright, maintainer, build-depends, stability, homepage,
    package-url, synopsis, description, category, author, tested-with,
    data-files, extra-source-files, extra-tmp-files

But the documentation says:

Who is right? Who is wrong? If I'm wrong, what is the fix?
