There have been a number of discussions over the past several weeks

design philosophy down, if for no other reason than to provide new
participants in this list a web payments design primer.

The very first rough draft is now available here:


As with all Web Payments specs designed in this group, anyone may
contribute to the document. Direct specification edits can be submitted
by using the github editing tool:


Keep in mind that this is just a place to start. The document is nowhere
near complete.
