Hi Ben,

Do you have a specific sentence that caused confusion for you? Both
"out-of-band" and "external" can be used interchangeably. What is
unclear about https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8446#section-2.2 for
example?

If you are interested in use of external PSKs, I suggest following this
work: https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-tls-external-psk-importer

This errat report lacks context, and even if accepted, it should
probably have been a new document. I suggest rejecting it.

Kind regards,
Peter
