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:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=7208&eid=4751

--------------------------------------
Type: Technical
Reported by: Ken Mortimer <kenmortimer@gmail.com>;

Section: 5.5

Original Text
-------------
This mechanism matches if

o  the <target-name> is a subdomain of a validated domain name, or

o  the <target-name> and a validated domain name are the same.

Corrected Text
--------------
This mechanism matches if

o  a validated domain name is a subdomain of the <target-name>, or

o  the <target-name> and a validated domain name are the same.

Notes
-----
The first bullet point is in contradiction to the description of the ptr mechanism evaluation in the preceding paragraph:
"Check all validated domain names to see if they either match the <target-name> domain or are a subdomain of the <target-name> domain. If any do, this mechanism matches. If no validated domain name can be found, or if none of the validated domain names match or are a subdomain of the <target-name>, this mechanism fails to match."

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 (IESG)
can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
