RFC 5464, "The IMAP METADATA Extension", February 2009

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP
Area Assignment: app
See Also: RFC 5464w/ inline errata

Errata ID: 1692

Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 4.3, pg.11 says:

       Arguments:  mailbox-name
|                  entry
|                  value
|                  list of entry, values

It should say:

       Arguments:  mailbox-name
|                  list of {entry, value} pairs

Notes:

Location is top of page 11.

Rationale:
The prose version of the syntax specification is confusing.
The ABNF in Section 5 is much more specific, and the prose
should correspond to the ABNF. The relevant ABFN rules
in Section 5 (pg.14/15) are (stripped of comments):
setmetadata = "SETMETADATA" SP mailbox SP entry-values
entry-values = "(" entry-value *(SP entry-value) ")"
entry-value = entry SP value
