RFC 3977, "Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP)", October 2006

Errata ID: 2037

Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 6.2.1.2 says:

   Note that a previously valid article number MAY become invalid if the
   article has been removed.  A previously invalid article number MAY
   become valid if the article has been reinstated, but this article
   number MUST be no less than the reported low water mark for that
   group.

It should say:

   Note that a previously valid article number MAY cease to refer to any
   article if that article has been removed, in which case use of that
   article number (explicitly or implicitly) will cause a 423 response.  A
   previously removed article may be reinstated (but its number MUST be no
   less than the reported low water mark for that group), in which case
   that number will once again refer to that article.

Notes:

The paragraph is misusing the term "invalid article number". The wording should have been something like the corrected text, suggested by Clive Feather.
