RFC 6749, "The OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework", October 2012

Errata ID: 6614
Status: Reported
Type: Editorial
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 5.1 says:

... adding the following parameters to the entity-body of the HTTP response ...

It should say:

... adding the following parameters as members to the JSON object in the entity-body of the HTTP response ...


Saying "adding the following parameters to the entity-body" seems to be confusing,
implying that HTTP entity bodies have parameters (at the level of semantics defined by HTTP), which they don't.

The corrected text doesn't necessarily need to be what I proposed in the "Corrected Text" field, but it should probably at least refer to the data or (JSON) object inside the entity body instead of just referring to the entity body.
