Hi Andreas,

I replied in your issue: https://github.com/OpenGovLD/specs/issues/60 copied here:

I believe parliaments based on Westminster use "sitting" to mean "meeting". Meeting is the more general term and would be applicable in more contexts. Since there is no substantive difference between the two - as far as I know - I would prefer the more generic term.

James
