Errata ID: 4712
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 6.2.1.3.1. says:

   ACE4_DELETE

      Operation(s) affected:

         REMOVE

It should say:

   ACE4_DELETE

      Operation(s) affected:

         REMOVE

         RENAME

Notes:

ACE4_DELETE on the source file may allow a rename to proceed in cases where the user does not have ACE4_DELETE_CHILD on the source directory. It may also affect the ability of the user to be able to RENAME if there is an existing file in the target directory with the target name.

AD notes based on Chuck Lever's input.
o The text in RFC 5661 Section 6.2.1.3.1 matches the text in RFC 7530 Section 6.2.1.3.1. Are updaed of RFC 7530 also needed for this reason?
o Should the Notes section of the errata be added to Section 6.2.1.3.2?
o A consideration is if there are already server implementations that reject RENAME operations in these cases, or do all server implementations permit RENAME?
o This is held so that the issues can be addressed in rfc5661bis after further discussion.
o Additional Editorial correction: The Discussion subsections of ACE4_DELETE and ACE4_DELETE are missing the word "how".
