+# Contributing
+
+Everyone is welcome to contribute to this specification.
+
+Any simple editorial contribution can simply be done with a GitHub Pull Request.
+You can even do an inline edit of the file on GitHub.
+
+For more substantial contributions that, please first start a thread in the
+[webapps mailing list](http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/) at
+the W3C.
+
+Note: The [Web Applications Working Group](http://www.w3.org/2012/webapps/)
+operates under the [W3C Patent Policy which](http://www.w3.org/Consortium
+/Patent-Policy-20040205/) aims to enable implementations of W3C Recommendations
+without the need to pay royalty fees. If you want to make contributions that can
+be used in normative parts of our specifications, we require you to [make the
+appropriate licensing commitments](http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/58119/status).

+# Style guide to contributors
+
+- the spec uses [ReSpec](http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/ReSpec.js/documentation.html)
+- the spec is tidied using [HTML5 Tidy](https://github.com/w3c/tidy-html5). For
+instructions on running HTML5 tidy, see below.
+- put comments in front of sections, for better readability with
+ syntax coloring editors
+
+
+# Running HTML5 Tidy
+
+Please make sure you have HTML5 tidy installed, instead of
+the the one that ships with *nix systems. You can comfirm this by running:
+
+```bash
+tidy --version #HTML Tidy for HTML5 (experimental) for ...
+```
+Once you have confirmed (make sure you have committed your changes before
+running tidy, as the changes are destructive ... in a good way:)):
+
+```bash
+tidy -config tidyconfig.txt -o index.html index.html
+```
