Yes, I too looked recently, and was disappointed to see 'nothing'.
OTOH I guess that Pieter Muller would have made a well 
considered decision  - which is hopefully still valid.

Perhaps Jan Verhoeven will - continue, since he's started ?

Did you just copy the one from ETH ?
Once I read about v 2.3.7 [perhaps connected with LNO]; is
v 2.3.6 the latest 'stable', or why did you choses it ?

As you see above Pieter Muller (who nursed the N-O project for
some years - before your time ;-) will authorise.

Well that's perhaps 'sensitive'. I've never read about the 
'oberon0.dsk' sources ?

BTW since you use linux, are you interested in LNO ?

Remind me, does sourceforge use frames, forms, java-script ...
which N-O can't [yet] do ?
