RFC 4479, "A Data Model for Presence", July 2006

Source of RFC: simple (rai)

Errata ID: 80
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 3 says:

   It is central to this model that each attribute
   is affiliated with the service, person, or device because they
   describe that service, presentity, or device.  This is in contrast to
   a model whereby the attributes are associated with the service,
   presentity, or device because they were reported by that service,
   presentity, or device. 

It should say:

   It is central to this model that each attribute
   is affiliated with the service, person, or device because they
   describe that service, person, or device.  This is in contrast to
   a model whereby the attributes are associated with the service,
   person, or device because they were reported by that service,
   person, or device.  

Notes:


Regarding the definition from Section 2, on top of page 4 of the RFC,

Presentity: A presentity combines devices, services, and person
information for a complete picture of a user's presence status on
the network.

IMHO the term "presentity" should have been replaced by "person" to keep this text passage
consistent with the terminology introduced in Section 2.
