Hi all,

I fixed link errors in-place as planned, including the DUL namespace in section 6.1.1 reported on the SDW WG mailing-list [1]. Same URL for the REC:
https://www.w3.org/TR/2017/REC-vocab-ssn-20171019/
(A "cache refresh" may be required to see the latest version)

I also published the first set of editorial errata in the Errata document, which is linked from the spec:
https://www.w3.org/2017/10/vocab-ssn-errata.html

Armin, the errata document includes the errors you found in Example 23. Our in-place modification policy forbids in-place modifications of the published Rec to fix these types of errors, so I cannot make the corrections in the Rec itself.

The Status of This Document section details the fixes made to the spec and invites readers to check the errata document. Additional errata can be published whenever needed.

Thanks,
Francois
