RFC 7231, "Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1): Semantics and Content", June 2014Source of RFC: httpbis (app)
Errata ID: 4224
Reported By: Bjoern Hoehrmann
Date Reported: 2015-01-09
Rejected by: Barry Leiba
Date Rejected: 2015-01-17
Section 4.1 and A. D says:
method = token
It should say:
method = <method, see [RFC7230], Section 3.1.1>
The HTTP/1.1 RFCs define rules imported across documents using prose rules for all rules except this one. This is an error because RFC7231 does not mean to re-define the production rule.
This is asking for an editorial change, but the errata system is not the place to record proposals for editorial improvements. There is an issue tracker at <https://github.com/httpwg/http11bis/issues> for keeping issues for a possible future HTTP 1.1 update.
