High level summary

This week, the hydra team worked on implementing ADR18 to get backup & restore functionality of the hydra-node over the line. Although not fully there yet, an early version of that feature was already needed and succesfully tested by SundaeSwap in their recent demonstration of their DEX running on Hydra. The team also worked on the updated specificaton, met with the researchers and discussed a solution for how to secure rollbacks "past the opening of a Head". We also reponded to recent requests for static executables and prioritized that feature higher, implemented it and merged it.
