Progress on digitization of LAC Soldiers of the First World War: 1914–1918 database.

LAC announced on Monday that 101,452 of 640,000 files are available online via the Soldiers of the First World War: 1914–1918 database.
The previous total, on November 18, was 78,914 of the 640,000 files available online. 22,538 files added in 28 days is a rate of 805 per day.  If continued at that rate the digitization would be complete in about October 2016.
While initially it appeared the files were being digitized in alphabetical order lately I see no obvious pattern in the order they're being selected.
