Esteemed colleagues,

Now that we've given folks an opportunity to join the working group,
we can now begin our technical work.  As many of you know, the
deliverables in our charter are divided into two phases.  At this
time, the chairs would like to issue a Call for Proposals for our
Phase 1 deliverables:

* Execution Model
* Security Model
* Alarm API
* Contacts API
* Messaging API
* Telephony API
* Raw Sockets API

If you have a draft specification for one or more of these
deliverables that you would like the working group to publish as a
First Public Working Draft, please use the following two-step process:

1) Send a pull request to add your document to the "proposals"
directory in <https://github.com/sysapps/sysapps>.  If you're
unfamiliar with GitHub, these step-by-step directions [1] will help
you create a pull request.

2) Once your pull request has been merged, start a new thread on
public-sysapps announcing your proposal, ideally with the name of the
deliverable in the subject.

Please format your proposals as a W3C working drafts, and use the W3C
Document License [2].  There are a number of tools you can use to help
you format your proposal.  I recommend using Anolis [3], which
produces beautiful documents, and reading this useful "how to" guide

Please submit your proposal by November 18th, 2012.  Working group
participants should feel free to discuss proposals as they are
submitted.  After November 18th, we'll seek consensus about which of
the proposals we want to publish as First Public Working Drafts.
Based on our previous discussions, it seems likely that we'll receive
multiple proposals for some deliverables.  In those cases, the working
group might want to combine multiple proposals into a single working
