Hi folks,

I've just published a date-stamped Editors Draft for the Payment Links



Online payments have traditionally been initiated in a variety of
different ways, but contain approximately the same parameters and result
in roughly the same outcome - the transfer of funds from a sending party
to a receiving party. The Payment Links specification outlines a
standard set of IRI parameters for the purposes of transmitting payment
from a source to a destination. The specification does not cover the
method of transmission, but rather the initiation of the payment
process. It is intended as a part of a family of open Internet Payment

The live copy of the document can be found here:


I believe it captures what Pelle suggested in his proposal to the 
mailing list. All thoughts, feedback, suggestions are welcome.
