The following errata report has been submitted for RFC8040,
"RESTCONF Protocol".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Technical
Reported by: Kent Watsen <kent+ietf@watsen.net>

Section: 4.8.5

Original Text
The default value is "last".

Corrected Text
The default value is “last”, except when used with PUT 
and the target resource already exists, in which case the 
default is to replace the target resource without altering
its position in the "ordered-by user” list or leaf-list.

The "last" default is intended for when creating a new element.  

A PUT operation that replaces a list or leaf-list entry should not move the entry unless the "insert" parameter is explicitly passed.

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.
