High-level summary

This week, the Hydra team has worked on several fronts, including improvements of their CI speed, logs, documentation pages and adding the support for timed transactions. They also updated the "Coding Standards" for the project, improved the troubleshooting page on their website and wrote a section about how to operate a hydra node. Finally the team completed a feature request that allows clients to submit and validate transactions to their hydra nodes using time validity ranges, ensuring isomorphism with L1.
