- Send a pull request to add your document to the "proposals" directory in https://github.com/w3c/nfc. If you're unfamiliar with GitHub, these step-by-step directions will help you create a pull request.

Please format your proposals as a W3C working drafts, and use the W3C Document License. There are a number of tools you can use to help you format your proposal, e.g. ReSpec and Anolis. Once your proposal is on github, please start a new thread on public-nfc announcing your proposal, ideally with the name of the deliverable in the subject.
Working group participants should feel free to discuss proposals as they are submitted. We'll seek consensus about which of the proposals we want to publish as First Public Working Drafts. If we get multiple proposals, the working group might want to combine multiple proposals into a single working draft.
