Section 8.7.1 says:

  {
    "id" : "urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:core:2.0:Group",
    "name" : "Group",
    "description" : "Group",
    "attributes" : [
      {
        "name" : "displayName",
        "type" : "string",
        "multiValued" : false,
        "description" : "A human-readable name for the Group.
REQUIRED.",
        "required" : false,
        "caseExact" : false,
        "mutability" : "readWrite",
        "returned" : "default",
        "uniqueness" : "none"
      },

It should say:

  {
    "id" : "urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:core:2.0:Group",
    "name" : "Group",
    "description" : "Group",
    "attributes" : [
      {
        "name" : "displayName",
        "type" : "string",
        "multiValued" : false,
        "description" : "A human-readable name for the Group.
REQUIRED.",
        "required" : true,
        "caseExact" : false,
        "mutability" : "readWrite",
        "returned" : "default",
        "uniqueness" : "none"
      },

Notes:

On page 68, in the JSON example schema for the Group resource, the displayName attribute is highlighted as REQUIRED in the "description" but the value of the "required" field is false. Given that section 4.2 also indicates displayName is a required attribute for Group resources, I believe the conflict in section 8.7.1 is best corrected by changing the value of the "required" attribute to true.
