Indeed, answering my own question after reading more of the long, but well-written specification: a more concise, but equivalent version, is of course:
- date: 2005-06-01 team: [ Jack, Jill, Joe ] boss: Clara - date: 2005-06-02 team: [ Harry, Hillary, Howie ] boss: Victoria
Even more concise, each day can be made to fit on one line:
- { date: 2005-06-01, team: [ Harry, Hillary, Howie ], boss: Clara + } - { date: 2005-06-02, team: [ Jack, Jill, Joe ], boss: Victor +ia }
which makes it more readable as a table.

I wonder if you can simplify even further, by factoring out the hash keys? Something on the order of:

# INCORRECT YAML SYNTAX - { date:, team:, boss: } - { 2005-06-01, [ Harry, Hillary, Howie ], Clara } - { 2005-06-02, [ Jack, Jill, Joe ], Victoria }
Probably not.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
