A Web page of book errata would be a great idea, especially since
several of the *major* CP books are said to be riddled with errors.
For instance, Ivo Koudela's book list (accessable through the CP FAQ)
claims that Marcel Lecoufle's book is full of errors, and that
Gordon Cheers' book also has a few errors. In my case, Marcel
Lecoufle is one of the only references I have in my library right
now, so it would be great to be able to see just where the errors are.

My suggestion is that someone be designated to collect errata
information from everyone, by e-mail or otherwise, and arrange it
all nicely in a Web page. This page could then be included in the
CP archive server. I volunteer, unless someone else is itching to
do it.
