Questions or suggestions for the Oberon documentation.

Regarding http://www.ocp.inf.ethz.ch/wiki/, is there any 
possibility of using Wiki software which would keep history and 
talk pages?  Similar to the Wikipedia.  Absence of history and 
talk doesn't prevent miguided edits.  What harm is being avoided?

http://www.ocp.inf.ethz.ch/wiki/OCP/Downloads has 
"ETH Oberon
 http://www.oberon.ethz.ch/downloads/index (replace in all ftp links ftp.inf.ethz.ch/pub with ftp.ethoberon.ethz.ch)."
A tenet of Oberon is to reach a result as directly as possible. 
In this case, rather than give a link to instructions, the 
instructions can be given as commands, to be executed directly.   
I can try adding commands to install the ETHO Alpha to 
http://www.ocp.inf.ethz.ch/wiki/Documentation/Installation#toc23 .

No offense Chris but PDF was for paper.  HTML5 is the current standard for the Web.
