report on behalf of TORTOREM team:

We performed additional analysis of Tortora data on early optical
transient of GRB 080319B (GCN 7427, Racusin et al.)  reported by us in
GCN 7502 and found the systematic error of 6.1 s in the time zero
point. To compensate it, all data points have to be shifted 6.1 s to
earlier times. The modified light curve, also including minor
photometric adjustments, is available at

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
