Not an error, but a lack of resolution in the figure.  As the text states, PUSH_PROMISE can only be sent on a peer-initiated stream in the "open" or "half-closed (remote)" state.  Receipt of that PUSH_PROMISE causes *the promised steam* to transition from "idle" to "reserved."  The figure correctly indicates that the PUSH_PROMISE frame causes that transition, but lacks the resolution to show that the PUSH_PROMISE occurred on a different stream not in the idle state.

The following errata report has been submitted for RFC7540, "Hypertext Transfer Protocol Version 2 (HTTP/2)".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Technical
Reported by: Erik Schnell <erik@schnell-ahaus.de>

Section: GLOBAL

Original Text

Corrected Text

Section 5.1 (fig. 2) and section 6.6 are contradictory. While the figure in 5.1 shows a transition from \\"idle\\" to \\"reserved (local)\\" on a PUSH_PROMISE receive, section 6.6 mentions:
\\"A sender MUST NOT send a PUSH_PROMISE on a stream unless that stream is either \\"open\\" or \\"half-closed (remote)\\"
\\"PUSH_PROMISE frames MUST only be sent on a peer-initiated stream that is in either the \\"open\\" or \\"half-closed (remote)\\" state.\\"

This erratum is currently posted as "Reported". If necessary, please use "Reply All" to discuss whether it should be verified or rejected. When a decision is reached, the verifying party (IESG) can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
