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

You may review the report below and at:

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported by: Peter Occil <poccil14@gmail.com>;
Date Reported: 2018-07-23
Verified by: Alexey Melnikov (IESG)

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.
