[ietf-smtp] FWD: [Technical Errata Reported] RFC5321 (5414)

2018-06-29 19:50:07
Anyone have comments on this?  I don't remember whether there
was a reason it was done the way it was or if that was just a
dumb ABNF error.

Subject: [Technical Errata Reported] RFC5321 (5414)

The following errata report has been submitted for RFC5321,
"Simple Mail Transfer Protocol".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid5414

--------------------------------------
Type: Technical
Reported by: David Romerstein <romer(_at_)apple(_dot_)com>

Section: 4.1.2

Original Text
-------------
Quoted-string  = DQUOTE *QcontentSMTP DQUOTE

Corrected Text
--------------
Quoted-string  = DQUOTE 1*QcontentSMTP DQUOTE

Notes
-----
As written, this allows for an email envelope recipient
(Forward-path) with a NULL value for the local part of their
address. This is a functional departure from similar wording in
the preceding RFC 821, which defines quoted-string in such a way
as to require at least one character that is not one of the
surrounding quotation marks.

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