RFC 5058, "Explicit Multicast (Xcast) Concepts and Options", November 2007

Source of RFC: INDEPENDENT

Errata ID: 1205

Status: Verified
Type: Editorial

Section 3 says:

[1075]

It should say:

[1075][3973]

Notes:

In the second bullet in the lower part of page 7, the RFC refers to
dense-mode multicast routing protocols. Beyond the dated RFC 1075,
it should mention the state-of-the-art Dense-Mode PIM (PIM-DM), published
in RFC 3973.
A proper entry [3973] needs to be added to Section 16 as well.

That will be
[3973] Adams, A, Nicholas, J and Siadak, W., "Protocol Independent Multicast -
Dense Mode (PIM-DM): Protocol Specification (Revised)," RFC 3973,
January 2005

Section 9.2.2 ff. says:

Notes:

The ruler line on top of Figure 4 (page 18) is garbled.
The figures should be centered to the bit positions, as usual;
the ten's digits need decade alignment; someone must have confused
that with octet numbering.
The same correction needs to be applied to
o Figure 5 in the same section (mid-page 19),
o Figure 6 in Section 9.3.2.1 (top of page 21),
o Figure 7 in Section 9.3.2.2 (top of page 22).

Note to RFC-Ed.: This issue looks like an influenza virus,
it has already affected multiple recent RFCs!
