Azul, and welcome to Wittenberg XIV.  At least, that is what I am calling it for the sake of posterity. :-)

As I write this, the Electoral Commission is still in the process of certifying the 54th Cosâ election.  Once that is done, I will be able to Scribe the new OrgLaw text as well as note the election on the Wiki in some way.

Normally, I would wait for such a thing to be finalized before issuing an update, but I want to be the first poster on this particular part of the new Witt.

The very rough archiving of the present Wittenberg XI continues, though it's been held up by my working to bring together the extant archive of the infamous Wittenberg VIII, which includes nearly the entirety of the seneschal-related archives of X. Conâ, Mximo C., and me.

This is turning out to be a prerequisite to my getting the Clarkives together, which will be official and annotated presentations of all extant bills, Clarks, elections, and other national-level things.  Provinces, you are on your own with stuff like that, though in time, Maricopa will be able to get at my Maricopa archives.

In the past two days, I sent the following thoughts to the PM regarding the Royal Archives:

"My vision for the post of Royal Archivist is as a coordinator of minions, each of which has a certain responsibility: one to archive media publications, one or more to keep a future Witt archived, etc. with the Royal Archivist with the specific task of keeping backups of talossa.ca (or a future database) and double-checking on everyone and everything and giving a general direction as to how the Royal Archives should operate: invisibly and transparently with redundancy of jobs and people and in such a way in five to ten years I will be able to happily step down and from thence be able to download all the publicly-available Royal digital archives at-will as any Talossan should be able to do.

Currently, the post of Royal Archivist is that of a KonMari consultant working on their own house.  And since late-summer 2018, my latest attempt at doing that has had incredible success.  This is due to a lesson my stubborn brain failed to grasp when I was PM: seek buy-in first from others.  When others are invited to the dinner party, it comes to life, and when you guys agreed to be my [Royal Archives ]Think-Tank, the Royal Archives became truly alive."

As to the 42 Project, it is the undergirding framework of everything I am doing with the Royal Archives.  By the end of this year (and I keep promising this, I know), I hope to have a full report of the status of that project which, once done, will never ever have to be done again.

Many thanks, all!

Dear Scribe, I note that 53RZ4, the Holidays etc. Act, has not been added to El Lexhátx.

Can we get an update on what still needs to be Scribed at the moment?
