Every person in the TC is asked to take their turn at scribing a meeting. You are encouraged to volunteer, and the co-chairs make this easy by providing a "cheatsheet" to make the task easy. Otherwise, when your name is called by the co-chair, please take your turn. You will use the chat room for the initial scribing.

Participants are responsible for the state of their voting rights. The co-chairs will endeavor to update the roster at http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/tosca/members/roster.php before meetings.

*** See TOSCA-7 (Alternate encodings Service Templates, e.g., YAML/JSON and Simple Profile)
** See explanation of OASIS document types and typical cadence
** Current "base" for v1.1 XML Spec and Simple Profile is the v1.0 OASIS Standard documents (public)

** TOSCA-108: Catch-all for All Editorial Suggestions That Do NOT Change Semantics, e.g., spelling, grammar, readability (use for all v1.1 documents)
