The following errata report has been submitted for RFC5102,
"Information Model for IP Flow Information Export".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=5102&eid=4984

--------------------------------------
Type: Technical
Reported by: Paul Aitken <pjaitken@brocade.com>;

Section: 5.2.10, appA

Original Text
-------------
Each bit represents an Information Element in the Data Record 
with the n-th bit
representing the n-th Information Element.

Corrected Text
--------------
Each bit represents an Information Element in the Data Record,
with the n-th least significant bit
representing the n-th Information Element.

Notes
-----
A misunderstand arose as to whether bits were assigned in host order or network order - so clarify that the bits are assigned from the least significant to the most significant, ie right-to-left rather than left-to-right.

Moreover, this clarification applies to IANA's IPFIX registry.

NB RFC 8038 re-uses this definition for mibIndexIndicator. Consistency between the definitions is desirable.

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
