> If nobody else has done or want to do it I would like to add an Oberon group and repository to GitHub with a branch per major version so it is possible to analyse how it evolved, and in my case especially what language version were used. I have my own parser and don't need to generate code.

There were two issues of the Oberon Guide in 1989 (https://doi.org/10.3929/ethz-a-005363230 and https://doi.org/10.3929/ethz-a-000508514) and a 1989 release was mentioned in the HOPL paper. There was likely at least another release in 1990. But these are just assumptions.
