Nice, I was probably also writing a mail with this information at about the
same time :-)
And yes, we are very much interested in feedback from implementers and open
to suggestions. If we can find gaps and fill them with good proposals, now
is the right time.

Right, having a straight-forward translation would be really desirable. The
way to get there can actually be two-fold: (1) any feedback we get from the
Murano folks on the TOSCA simple profile and YAML can help us to make TOSCA
capable of addressing the right use cases, and (2) on the other hand make
sure the implementation goes in a direction that is in line with what TOSCA
YAML will look like.
