The following errata report has been rejected for RFC7231,
"Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1): Semantics and Content".

You may review the report below and at:

Status: Rejected
Type: Editorial

Reported by: Bjoern Hoehrmann <bjoern@hoehrmann.de>
Date Reported: 2015-01-09
Rejected by: Barry Leiba (IESG)

Section: 4.1 and A. D

Original Text
     method = token

Corrected Text
     method = <method, see [RFC7230], Section 3.1.1>

The HTTP/1.1 RFCs define rules imported across documents using prose rules for all rules except this one. This is an error because RFC7231 does not mean to re-define the production rule.
This is asking for an editorial change, but the errata system is not the place to record proposals for editorial improvements.  There is an issue tracker at <https://github.com/httpwg/http11bis/issues> for keeping issues for a possible future HTTP 1.1 update.
