     DESCRIPTION

        " The vendor extension allows vendors to provide a list of

          additional capabilities.



          The syntax for this MIB object in ABNF ([RFC5234]) is

          specified to be zero or more occurrences of vendor

          extensions, as follows:



           pktcSigCapabilityVendorExt  = *(vendor-extension)

|          vendor-extension = (ext symbol alphanum) DQUOTE ; DQUOTE

|          ext      = DQUOTE %x58 DQUOTE

|          symbol   = (DQUOTE %x2D DQUOTE)/(DQUOTE %x2D DQUOTE)

           alphanum = 1*6(ALPHA/DIGIT)

     ...

     DESCRIPTION

        " The vendor extension allows vendors to provide a list of

          additional capabilities.



          The syntax for this MIB object in ABNF ([RFC5234]) is

          specified to be zero or more occurrences of vendor

          extensions, as follows:

|          ext      = %x58               ; uppercase only X

|          symbol   = %x2B / %x2D        ; + or -

           alphanum = 1*6(ALPHA/DIGIT)



         "

Notes
-----
Symptom: ABNF grossly nonsensical:

         ABNF comment  '; DQUOTE'  perhaps intended as non-comment;

         all DQUOTEs apparently should be removed;

         two identical alternatives for symbol do not make sense.



Correction is based on earlier draft versions, applying the

corrections necessary to obtain valid ABNF, yet specifying

what probably was intended.



Alternatively, the following line might be substituted above:



|          symbol   = "+" / "-"
