Typo in Sagemanifolds worksheet ? [closed]

Sorry to bother the group but I don't know how to report a technical (but inconsequential) typo in Kerr_Schild.ipynb Where should I report it? After In[33] or so, "Check of the Identity"
\frac{x^2 + y^2}{r^2 + a^2} + \frac{z^2}{r^2} = 1
Should be:
\frac{x^2 + y^2}{R^2 + a^2} + \frac{z^2}{R^2} = 1
It seems to be too trivial for a 'Ticket' on the Sagemanifolds forum. I am just reading the program in detail; checking my understanding.

If it's a mistake, it's worth a ticket.

Even if it were a mistake (which is not, see the answer below), it would not have been worth a ticket, because this is not an issue with Sage code nor standard documentation. It regards only a comment in some Markdown cell of this Jupyter notebook.

This is not a typo: $R$ is actually equal to $r$, see e.g. Sec. C.2.2 in Appendix C of these lecture notes, in particular compare Eq. (C.22) to Out[24] of the notebook. The notation $R$ is used to distinguish the function of $(x,y,z)$ from the coordinate $r$, but numerically, we have $r = R(x,y,z)$.

Okay, I see
