Section 5.2 says:

If new query is Group and Source Specific query and there is pending 
response for this group and recorded source list for the group is empty 
(i.e. previous query was Group Specific query)

It should say:

[see note]


In section 5.2 of RFC 3376, 5 sequential steps are given to handle the
received query from the multicast router.
I feel the following case is not handled properly in these steps (see above)

In this case, source list will be cleared as per step 4 of section 5.2.
But I feel the source list should be recorded to generate the report

from pending
The RFC is correct in saying that recorded source-list should be cleared if the newly received query is group-specific query.
