It's buried in the Q&A section.
It's the PCU thing.
The thread there clearly shows that trusting just one source
of information, no matter how trustworthy that source, for
making important design decisions with big consequences
("let's tie this pin to ground, right under the package") is
not such a hot idea. Also that XMOS is not the first (nor
will be the last) making such datasheet mistakes.
I'm not saying this couldn't have been handled better. Of
course it could, should, and hopefully will be in the future.
I'm saying that the posters are not without blame for their
own problems either.
