JPMS Module Path question

In the current summary in (which I understand was pat of the input to the vote), the following things were wrong: 

	* Grammar (package declaration allowed together with a module declaration), and
	* Several attribute descriptions were missing []

And of course the not so unimportant concepts like the UnnamedModule, AutomaticModule, enumerated, and read concepts are completely missing from the summary. Since I wrongly assumed the absence of these concepts in the summary was caused by them being  runtime concepts and not JLS concepts I ignored them in the first article. However, the draft now shows they’ve become first class citizens, also for compiling. So I will create an update soon.

Just citing in the summary that it is out of date would have helped me a lot.

Kind regards,
