Invitation to comment on TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML v1.2 - ends February 18th

We are pleased to announce that the OASIS Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications (TOSCA) TC members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted it for a 30-day public review:

TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML Version 1.2
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 01
07 December 2017

This is the first public review for Version 1.2. TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML Version 1.1 is currently a Candidate OASIS Standard.

Overview:

YAML is a human friendly data serialization standard with a syntax much easier to read and edit than XML. The TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML specifies a rendering of TOSCA which aims to provide a more accessible syntax as well as a more concise and incremental expressiveness of the TOSCA DSL (Domain Specific Language) in order to minimize the learning curve and speed the adoption of the use of TOSCA to portably describe cloud applications. The TOSCA TC approved this draft on 07 December 2017.

Public Review Period:

The public review starts 19 January 2018 at 00:00 UTC and ends 18 February at 23:59 UTC.
