The following errata report has been submitted for RFC7208,
"Sender Policy Framework (SPF) for Authorizing Use of Domains in Email, Version 1".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Technical
Reported by: Peter Occil <poccil14@gmail.com>

Section: GLOBAL

Original Text
    header-field     = "Received-SPF:" [CFWS] result FWS [comment FWS]
                       [ key-value-list ] CRLF

Corrected Text
    header-field     = "Received-SPF:" [CFWS] result [ FWS comment ]
                       [ FWS key-value-list ] [FWS] CRLF

As specified, this ABNF doesn't allow a header field value like result-FWS-comment with no FWS or key-value-list following it, a header field value which occurs very often in Received-SPF header fields I see in practice.  (Note that FWS must contain at least one white space.)  The corrected ABNF better follows practice in implementations.

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.
