So what about this small change:
5.2.3. Version 4 Signature Packet Format
The body of a version 4 Signature Packet contains:
- One-octet version number (4).
- One-octet signature type.
| - One-octet public key algorithm or a value of zero to indicate
| that no multi-precision integers follow.
- One-octet hash algorithm.
- Two-octet scalar octet count for following hashed subpacket
data. Note that this is the length in octets of all of the hashed
subpackets; a pointer incremented by this number will skip over
the hashed subpackets.
- Hashed subpacket data. (zero or more subpackets)
- Two-octet scalar octet count for following unhashed subpacket
data. Note that this is the length in octets of all of the
unhashed subpackets; a pointer incremented by this number will
skip over the unhashed subpackets.
- Unhashed subpacket data. (zero or more subpackets)
- Two-octet field holding left 16 bits of signed hash value.
| - Zero or more multi-precision integers comprising the signature.
| This portion is algorithm specific, as described above.
