The following errata report has been submitted for RFC6844,
"DNS Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) Resource Record".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Technical
Reported by: Richard Gibson <richard.j.gibson@oracle.com>

Section: 3

Original Text
<Issuer Domain Name> [; <name>=<value> ]*

Corrected Text
<Issuer Domain Name> [; [ <name>=<value> ]* ]

For values of the "issue" and "issuewild" property tags, section 3 specifies [; <name>=<value> ]* (which seems to indicate that every parameter is preceded by a semicolon) but the grammar in section 5.2 specifies [";" *(space parameter) space] (in which parameters are separated by whitespace and the entire list is preceded by a single semicolon). Presumably, the formal grammar is definitive and the preceding shorthand should be updated to better express it.

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.
