The last week of January 2013 has almost arrived before my first post of this year. I am busy preparing a post about one of the themes which deserve more attention here. With this post I hope to fulfill to some extent a promise which I have made here repeatedly, but it takes more time than I had expected. A second reason for the relative silence here is the preparation for a new blog which I hope to launch soon. On this blog I will present ongoing research for a project concerning the edition of a particular kind of legal commentary. Although I am eager to tell you more about it, I had better continue working on the first posts for this new blog!
