The following errata report has been submitted for RFC4469,
"Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) CATENATE Extension".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Technical
Reported by: Chris Newman <chris.newman@oracle.com>

Section: Appendix A

Original Text
   S: A003 NO [BADURL "/INBOX;UIDVALIDITY=785799047/;UID=113330;
   section=1.5.9"] CATENATE append has failed, one message expunged

Corrected Text
   S: A003 NO [BADURL /INBOX;UIDVALIDITY=785799047/;UID=113330;
   section=1.5.9] CATENATE append has failed, one message expunged

Although this example technically follows the ABNF for url-resp-text in section 5 by treating the double-quotes as part of the content of the url-resp-text rule, it is incorrect because it does not follow the additional guidance in section 5 that states:

   The astring in the definition of url and the url-resp-text in the
   definition of badurl-response-code each contain an imapurl as defined
   by [2].

Reference [2] defines IMAP URLs. In that RFC, a string surrounded by double quotes is not a valid IMAP URL. Thus the example is incorrect and the double quotes should be removed so the example aligns with the normative formal syntax.

This errata 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 (IESG)
can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
