The CVS repository currently only contains the source of the CvsClient 
module (encoded with itself).

I've now added links to the project page and CVS repository on the home 
page http://nativeoberon.sf.net .

It is simple format I made specifically for this purpose.  The goal was 
to make very little change to the text, so that it is readable when 
viewed with the CVS web interface.

The grammar for the file format in EBNF is at the end of the 
CvsClient.Mod source code.  See:

I wanted something simple and readable, and easy to parse, also on 
Native Oberon without XML.

Instead of a Permedia card, I would recommend a card with good Vesa 
2.0/3.0 support.  Thomas Frey is more up-to-date with the best hardware 
to get for Bluebottle, perhaps he could suggest something.  BTW He has a 
great little Samsung laptop with very good support for Bluebottle.

Ok, so there is some interest :-)  Will try to do it soon.
