RFC 7541, "HPACK: Header Compression for HTTP/2", May 2015

Source of RFC: httpbis (app)

Errata ID: 5094
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Section 5.1 says:

Integers are used to represent name indexes, header field indexes,
or string lengths.

It should say:

Integers are used to represent name indexes, header field indexes,
string lengths, or dynamic table size.

Notes:

Section 5.1 says, Integer encodings that exceed implementation limits — in value or octet length — MUST be treated as decoding errors.

Section 6.3 is using HPACK integer to represent value of dynamic table size. This size can be more larger than index or string length.

This change make user who implement integer encoding/decoding can figure out a proper integer value limit for each condition.
