We already have a lot of “hard” problems solved by building on top of the Timeless Stack – we have hermetic builds; we have snapshottable indices; we have immutable distribution systems; and so on.
So what’s left? The contents of the packages themselves, of course! Here are some attributes we’d like to ensure:
Radix is an early stage project. As such, the documentation stops here. Get in touch if you’d like to contribute :)
