A very brief history

The .arc manifest takes inspiration from UNIX 'run command' files (like .vimrc, .bashrc, etc). Architect started out as arc which itself was an acronym for "Amazon run commands".

The code was developed building Begin and granted to JS Foundation in July of 2017 under the Apache-2.0 license.
