The following errata report has been submitted for RFC6455,
"The WebSocket Protocol".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=6455&eid=4919

--------------------------------------
Type: Technical
Reported by: Jefferson Carpenter <jeffersoncarpenter2@gmail.com>

Section: 7.4.1

Original Text
-------------
1001 indicates that an endpoint is "going away", such as a server
      going down or a browser having navigated away from a page.

Corrected Text
--------------
(unsure)

Notes
-----
This status code apparently covers two entirely different situations: a server going down, and a browser having navigated away.  What is meant by "going away", why can't these be 2 different status codes?  That info should be present in the RFC text.

Instructions:
-------------
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  
can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
