RFC 8402, "Segment Routing Architecture", July 2018

Source of RFC: spring (rtg)

Errata ID: 7546
Status: Rejected
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Reported By: Praveen Kumar

Section 1 says:

The active segment is indicated by the Destination Address (DA) of the packet.
The next active segment is indicated by the SegmentsLeft (SL) pointer in the SRH.

It should say:

Not sure of the exact corrected text but I feel SegmentsLeft (SL) pointer denotes the active segment, not the next active segment.


SL is the active segment
I am rejecting this errata as https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc8200#section-4.4 says “Number of route segments remaining, i.e., number of explicitly listed intermediate nodes still to be visited before reaching the final destination.”. In my opinion, the existing text for RFC 8402 is accurate based on the quoted text of RFC 8200.
