OASIS members and other interested parties,
The OASIS Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications (TOSCA) TC members  have produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:
TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML Version 1.1
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
12 January 2017
What is the TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML and why is it important?
TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML defines a simplified profile of the TOSCA Version 1.0 specification in a YAML rendering which is intended to simplify the authoring of TOSCA service templates. This profile defines a less verbose and more human-readable YAML rendering, reduced level of indirection between different modeling artifacts as well as the assumption of a base type system.
