Well a subversion repository is used for A2 at least.   =8~)

As systems have evolved, so has the endeavour to archive versions.

Being almost ignorant of the subject I wonder: is Linux style version 
management really the best way for Oberon?  With Oberon being so 
compact, what is wrong with John Doe releasing a system _holus bolus_. 
Over time there are more and more of these archives, each several MB 
but << 1 GB.  So a Web server can show an evolution graph with each 
node being a link to an archive.  Also some annotation with 
recommendations such as "Good for an embedded system!", "Best personal 
workstation capabilities", "Designed for data acquisition" and etc.

No doubt some of you have better ideas.
