Well, it turned out rather clear and helpful.

Better from the mouth of the horse than from a poor restatement by me.
Open https://en.wikibooks.org/ .
In the left margin click on Help.
There click on Contributing.
Incidentally, if you write something which you don't want changed, it
can be protected.
> Who maintains it?
Anyone willing to help. We 7 x 10^9 humans on this little planet
must rely on ourselves.
FWIIW, I started this Oberon book but consider myself a custodian, analogous
to a janitor in a school. The janitor doesn't teach the classes. Just tries to
keep the facilities reasonably clean and tidy.
> What is its goal?
I continue to use PC Native O. and UnixAos, Oberon as workstations and am
dismayed that many small bugs and oddities are not fixed in a public archive
or distribution. Each user must repair the same faulty bearings & loose bolts
in a new car. =8~(
As mentioned to Bernhard, many or most of us are past middle age and none
will live forever. I'm concerned that without some broadly accepted records,
Oberon will be forgotten after a generation.
So the wikibook might address some concerns.

Good, although inserting directly to the book might be easier than creating

You and Joerg express similar sentiments. I know the
wikibook is not ideal. What is better?
