Of LL itself as well, I assume, or do you mean just AEC?

p. 43 of the AEC says that CLW is a level 1 Druid Spell, butthe spell list on p. 83 shows it as 2nd level. Which is correct?

I'm working from the text files you recently made available (big thanks for that, BTW), which I understood to be the latest version, though maybe I have that wrong.

I'm going through things pretty closely for a project I'm working on and am seeing a few minor errata here and there (typos, various other tidbits). Are you wanting those noted somewhere for possible future review? The cool thing about projects like this is you can get lots of eyes looking; the uncool thing is that it still comes down to one guy having to make all the changes, and due to the nature of the feedback it's a never-ending stream.

Unless there's a way others can lend a hand. (If so, I'd be very willing to assist.)

That is correct, thanks for clarifying that. I wonder if we should start a new thread for eratta only in the latest version?

@Machfront, yep LL also

Text File: The spell Animal Growth is in the spell descriptions for magic-users but is not included in the list for M-Us.

2nd level M-U spell False Trap description says
This clever enchantment may be used by the caster to permanently create the false perception that an item, such as a small box, lock, dagger, etc., is trapped...

But the duration is listed as 6 turns per level

EDIT to add: It seems like 6 turns per level makes the spell nearly useless except in a few very specific circumstances when the caster knows someone is coming and will be checking for traps. The original version was permanent. I'm ruling this spell's duration to be permanent.

From the text doc: 2nd level illusionist spell Fog Cloud description says
A 40’ high, 20’ long x 20’ high bank of fog billows forth at the caster’s command.

My guess is that the 40' is supposed to be a width.

I believe it's been clarified that it should be 2nd level.

Not sure if this is an omission that was a design decision or merely an oversight, but in Number Encountered entry, p. 61 of LL, there is no mention of the 5X multiplier of creatures in lair which exists from Moldvay through Mentzer & RC. This a substantial number of potential XPs for parties and without it, the lair numbers are somewhat wacky. For instance, a Goblin Horde would be a maximum size of 60 goblins per the current RAW. I hope I've posted this is the correct forum because to me, it certainly seems erroneous.

Just noticed this. On AEC page 152, the Homunculus is listed among the creatures with 6 hit dice. On page 129, it has AC 6 but only 2 HD.
