The review is still in progress, please feel free to comment on the doc and we will summarize all comments to our second version.

Very cool. It’d be nice to see a DAG project review at some point :slight_smile:

We do have one for layer2 solutions but 3 or 4 DAG projects in progress. We are also looking for volunteers to write reviews for us so please let us know if you are interested in contributing!
