The following errata report has been submitted for RFC6154,
"IMAP LIST Extension for Special-Use Mailboxes".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid5431

--------------------------------------
Type: Editorial
Reported by: Bron Gondwana <brong@fastmailteam.com>;

Section: 2

Original Text
-------------
An IMAP server that supports this extension MAY include any or all of
the following attributes in responses to the non-extended IMAP LIST
command.

Corrected Text
--------------
An IMAP server that supports this extension SHOULD include any or all of
the following attributes in responses to the non-extended IMAP LIST
command.

Notes
-----
There exist clients which send a non-extended LIST command and will correctly display and interact with mailboxes usefully if their special-uses are given in the response.

Because of this, many servers are already replying with the special-use attributes, and there are no known reports of clients being broken by that behaviour.  Because of this, the MAY should be raised to a SHOULD, and server implementations should default to turning this on.

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.
