Hello lightning implementors!
(Posted to lightning-dev as well, hopefully that's fine with everyone)
Matsjj set up a repo a while ago for collaborating on documenting the
lightning protocol and gave a bunch of us admin access:
"""I think it is a very good idea to carry all the different
implementations to one spot. I think such a repository is best suited
I think the layout is a bit too nested (which makes sense coming from
the Java implementor, I guess? :) and I think it'd be good to have a
simple way to decide how to move ideas into/through the repo, without
making it a place where there's any point trying to politicise proposals.
(It's kind of telling that something's wrong when even matsjj hasn't
been able to get his pull requests accepted :)
Anyway I've taken Rusty's couple of BOLT proposals as well as the shachain
design txt and rearranged them in a way I think makes sense:
What do you guys think?
I hear there's totally going to be released code out by
northern-hemisphere summer, so documenting the protocols/standards is
only going to get more pressing...
My inclination is to add:
- matsjj's pull requests 
- the anonymous "R", via private key reveal stuff 
- Joseph's 2-of-3 Instant Escrow 
as additional "early drafts". Probably things from Rusty's "Deployable
Lightning" paper (like the HTLC scripts), or the "elkrem" scheme, or
Nicholas Dorier's "backward deterministic [revocation] Value" stuff
would be good too...
