RFC 5050, "Bundle Protocol Specification", November 2007

Source of RFC: IRTF

Errata ID: 1504
Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported By: Alfred Hoenes
Date Reported: 2008-09-15

Date Verified: 2009-11-10

Section 6.1.1,pg.40 says:

|  Fragment Offset:   If the bundle fragment bit is set in the status
|     flags, then the offset (within the original application data unit)
      of the payload of the bundle that caused the status report to be
      generated is included here.

|  Fragment length:   If the bundle fragment bit is set in the status
|     flags, then the length of the payload of the subject bundle is
      included here.

It should say:

|  Fragment Offset:   If the bundle fragment bit is set in the
|     administrative record flags, then the offset (within the original
      application data unit) of the payload of the bundle that caused
      the status report to be generated is included here.

|  Fragment length:   If the bundle fragment bit is set in the
|     administrative record flags, then the length of the payload of
      the subject bundle is included here.

Notes:

Note the distinct fields:
-- administrative record flags (least significant nibble of the
one-octet administrative record header, per Figure 9 on pg.37)
-- status flags (first octet in the body of a bundle status report,
per Figure 11 on page 39)
The fragment bit is contained in the former, not in the latter.

Attention: this same issue recurs literally in Section 6.1.2,
on pg. 43, below Figure 14 !
