RFC 4940, "IANA Considerations for OSPF", July 2007

Source of RFC: ospf (rtg)

Errata ID: 1025

Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Alfred Hoenes
Date Reported: 2007-08-15

Section 5.7 says:

          vvvvvvv                     v
|  OSPFv2 Options Registry (Section 2.1)

   Value Description Reference
   ----- ----------- ---------
   0x01  B-bit       [RFC2328]
|  0x02  W-bit       [RFC2328]
   0x04  V-bit       [RFC2328]
   0x08  W-bit       [RFC1584]
   0x10  Nt-bit      [RFC3101]

It should say:

          vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv                     vvv
|  OSPFv2 Router Properties Registry (Section 2.4.2)

   Value Description Reference
   ----- ----------- ---------
   0x01  B-bit       [RFC2328]
|  0x02  E-bit       [RFC2328]
   0x04  V-bit       [RFC2328]
   0x08  W-bit       [RFC1584]
   0x10  Nt-bit      [RFC3101]

Notes:

Apparently, the headline has been erroneously copied from Section 5.1
without performing the necessary edits.
The duplicate occurrence of "W-Bit" in the table is striking -
Section A.4.2 of RFC 2328 normatively gives the correct name of bit
0x02, and the Appendices of RFC 3101 and RFC 1584 correctly replicate
the field names as stated in RFC 2328 (and its predecessors).
