The following errata report has been submitted for RFC9110,
"HTTP Semantics".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Technical
Reported by: Julian Reschke <julian.reschke@gmx.de>

Section: 14.1.1

Original Text
  ranges-specifier = range-unit "=" range-set
  range-set        = 1#range-spec
  range-spec       = int-range
                   / suffix-range
                   / other-range

Corrected Text
  ranges-specifier = range-unit "=" OWS range-set
  range-set        = 1#range-spec
  range-spec       = int-range
                   / suffix-range
                   / other-range

The ABNF is inconistent with one of the examples given in 14.1.2

   bytes= 0-999, 4500-5499, -1000

The bug in the ABNF was likely introduced when converting away from "implied linear whitespace".
