The following errata report has been submitted for RFC7233,
"Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1): Range Requests".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Technical
Reported by: Kannan Goundan <kannan@cakoose.com>

Section: 2.1

Original Text
byte-range-set  = 1#( byte-range-spec / suffix-byte-range-spec )

Corrected Text
byte-range-set = *( "," OWS ) ( byte-range-spec /
    suffix-byte-range-spec ) *( OWS "," [ OWS ( byte-range-spec /
    suffix-byte-range-spec ) ] )

The document contains two ABNF definitions for "byte-range-set".  They appear in Section 2.1 "Byte Ranges" and Appendix D "Collected ABNF".

The two definitions are different.  It seems like the definition in Appendix D is the correct one.

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.
