Spec Meeting - 02.Mar.2022
The Lightning Network has multiple implementations that are all theoretically working together to be compatible and define the network as a whole. But the past week there have been some public discussions around how relevant the Lightning Spec process actually is. Some developers believe everything should be formalized into the Spec, others want to maintain control of what features they offer/implement and when.
Current disagreements aside, hopefully things evolve to produce the best experience for users.
