The charm starts the Polkadot client as a service, taking startup arguments from /etc/default/polkadot as set by the juju config service-args.
The Polkadot client itself is downloaded and installed from the charm config binary-url. See: https://github.com/paritytech/polkadot/ for available releases.
The charm is capable of running all polkadot parachains by setting the service-args.
