On RMB version, PY - Payment:
Payment Weighted Distribution does not consider outstanding bill segment amount

Currently the Payment distribution happens in a weighted distribution manner. For arriving at the weighted distribution, the original bill segment amounts are considered. For e.g. If there are 2 bill segments of $1000 each, then the payment distribution weights are 50% and hence if a $1000 payment is applied, two Payment segments of $500 each are created and linked to the match event of the respective bill segments.

If there are any adjustment on the bill(lets say $10 and $20) and these adjustments are linked to the match events of the bill segments, then ideally the outstanding amount for each bill segment would be $990 and $980. Hence when payment segments are created, the weighted distribution should happen as per these outstanding amounts. So assuming if the total payment is of $1000, then pay segments created should be of amounts 502.53 ([990/990+980]*1000) and 497.46([980/980+990]*1000) instead of $500 each.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
