Section 2 says:

It should say:

RFC 3623 "Graceful OSPF Restart" in section 2.2 "When to Exit
Graceful Restart" specifies that if router recovering its LSDB
after switchover did not receive its own pre-restart Router LSA
from neighbor helping in Graceful Restart then this should
be treated as unrecoverable change in the LSDB incompatible with
the Graceful Restart. To satisfy this verification neighbor's
Router LSA must never be optimized out of DBD exchange with a
neighbor performing Graceful Restart. This may happen if the
restarting router has multiple adjacencies and has already
learned its pre-restart Router LSA from some neighbors before
starting DBD exchange with others.


This appears to be a technical extension to the RFC and is thus outside the scope of the errata process.

The submitter should address the issue by publishing an RFC.
