RFC 5497, "Representing Multi-Value Time in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs)", March 2009

Source of RFC: manet (rtg)

Errata ID: 1722
Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Section 6.2, pg.9 says:

[ first bullet: ]

   o  The <length> field in the TLV MUST contain the value m * (2n+1),
|     with n being the number of (time-value, hop count) pairs in the
|     Time TLV, and m being number-values as defined in [RFC5444].

It should say:

   o  The <length> field in the TLV MUST contain the value m * (2n+1),
|     with n being the number of (time-value, hop count) pairs per
|     associated address in the Time TLV, and m being number-values as
      defined in [RFC5444].
 

Notes:

Rationale:
The original text is contradictory in itself, and it opposes the
subsequent bullets and prose in the same section.
The proposed correction (inserting "per associated adddress")
is derived from the text in the first paragraph of the section.
