New update of customary IHL database

We have just updated the customary IHL database to include additional practice from Fiji and Guinea.

The database contains:

- the 161 rules of customary IHL identified in the 2005 ICRC customary IHL study,
- the practice underlying that study,
- regular updates of the study's practice part.
