In one of the files available on your website, we've found the following information:
OID: {iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) 10045 module(4) 1}
Description: Modules
Registrant : "X9F"

Which one is right? "module" or "signatures"?
Both ;)
I made an error in writing the X9.62 ASN.1 and assigned this OID twice, once to the module OID and again to the signatures. Best to let signatures win, as these actually have an effect on products and code, and change the module assignment from:
ANSI-X9-62 {iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) 10045 module(4) 1}
ANSI-X9-62 {iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) 10045 module(4) 2}
ANSI-X9-62 {iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) 10045 module(5) 1}
ANSI-X9-62 {iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) 10045 module(5) 2}

I'll contact by Cc some "X9F" chairs and get them to ask Miles Smid to get this changed to {iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) ansi-x962(10045) module(5)} in the next X9.62 revision.
