RFC 2849, "The LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF) - Technical Specification", June 2000

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP
Area Assignment: app

Errata ID: 3646
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Section Note 4 says:

Any dn or rdn that contains characters other than those
defined as "SAFE-UTF8-CHAR", or begins with a character other
than those defined as "SAFE-INIT-UTF8-CHAR",

It should say:

Any dn or rdn that contains characters other than those
defined as "SAFE-CHAR", or begins with a character other
than those defined as "SAFE-INIT-CHAR",

Notes:

This appears in note 4 of "Notes on LDIF Syntax".

---- Verifier notes ----
Note 4 has double text, one of which allows more than the other. But the ABNF
doesn't have that ambiguity. This is really something that can only be fixed by
revising the spec. It's simply not clear what the intent was.
