        If the preprint is materially the same as the
        work covered by the copyright transfer, then
        the preprint should be withdrawn, leaving
        no more than a cite or a link.

        A preprint that is not withdrawn clearly
        infringes the copyright transfer agreement and
        puts the author in the morally and legally
        questionable position of contributing to

        Moreover, corrigenda really doesn't help the
        reader when major revisions have taken place.
        Best wishes,
