Commonwealth Hansard XML repository updates

Hey Australian Hansard fans, I’ve done a complete reharvest of all of the Commonwealth Hansard XML files from 1901 to 1980 from ParlInfo. There’s been lots of improvements/corrections, and most of the file names have changed (they now have a version flag). The improvements seem to be ongoing, so I’ll try to harvest more regularly from now on. You can download the lot from the GitHub repository.

I still need to load the updated XML into the Historic Hansard site, but that’s going to have to wait for a month or two…
