--------------------------------------
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Reported by: Anton Yushkov <antonyyushkov@gmail.com>
Date Reported: 2020-08-12
Held by: Alvaro Retana (IESG)

Section: 5.1.3

Original Text
-------------
3) When sending a message to an external peer X, and the peer is
multiple IP hops away from the speaker (aka "multihop EBGP"):
...
- By default, the BGP speaker SHOULD use the IP address of the interface that the speaker uses in the NEXT_HOP attribute to establish the BGP connection to peer X.

Corrected Text
--------------
3) When sending a message to an external peer X, and the peer is
multiple IP hops away from the speaker (aka "multihop EBGP"):
...
- By default, the BGP speaker SHOULD use the IP address of the interface that the speaker uses to establish the BGP connection to peer X in the NEXT_HOP attribute.

Notes
-----
confusing incorrect word order:
reading the original text, the reader might think that the BGP speaker is using the NEXT_HOP attribute as part of establishing a connection with the peer
