RFC 4122, "A Universally Unique IDentifier (UUID) URN Namespace", July 2005

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP
Area Assignment: app

Errata ID: 3476
Status: Verified
Type: Editorial

Section Appendix A,B says:

In Appendix A, the line:
    uuid_create_md5_from_name(&u, NameSpace_DNS, "www.widgets.com", 15);
In Appendix B, the line:
     uuid_create_md5_from_name(): e902893a-9d22-3c7e-a7b8-d6e313b71d9f

It should say:

In Appendix A, the line:
    uuid_create_md5_from_name(&u, NameSpace_DNS, "www.example.com", 15);
In Appendix B, the line:
     uuid_create_md5_from_name(): 5df41881-3aed-3515-88a7-2f4a814cf09e

Notes:

Per RFC2606 section 5, it is best practice for standards and other documentation (including RFCs) to use the reserved example domains (e.g. example.com) rather than domains which could be in actual use. Indeed, the domain in question (www.widgets.com) is in actual use at the time of writing. So this proposed change uses "www.example.com" instead, and changes the example output accordingly. (Note that original output was wrong for the original input, as already noted in verified errata 1352.)
