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

You may review the report below and at:

Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Technical

Reported by: Richard Gibson <richard.j.gibson@oracle.com>;
Date Reported: 2017-12-08
Held by: EKR (IESG)

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.
