Section 6 says:

On top of page 7, Section 6 of RFC 5035 says:

   The fields of ESSCertID are defined as follows:

   certHash
|     is computed over the entire DER-encoded certificate (including the
|     signature).

   [...]

This is the counterpart to the issue explained in errata 2634.
In the original Cert ID (v1) described here, the signature algorithm
is fixed and should be specified explicitely as SHA-1 in the
description of the certHash field :

   certHash
|     is computed over the entire DER-encoded certificate (including the
|     signature), using the SHA-1 algorithm.
                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

It should say:

See above.
