That URL is for the differential for an edit made 2020-08-15. The 
compiler page itself is https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Oberon/compilers .

Seeing that Crelier made the front-end for OP2, assertion that he also 
made the back-end for MIPS is entirely plausible.

I've added one character.  Throughout the original page there is a 
blank between the initial of a given name and the family name.  Eg. 
"A. Signer" rather than "A.Signer".  So I've added the blank between 
R. and Crelier. 

I wondered about

The location appears plausible.  =8~)

At the top of the page is the note "This document was originally 
hosted at the ETHZ." My initial intention was to preserve the 
information independent of archive.org.  Omission wasn't intended.

Likely I saw the page years ago but hadn't thought of it since 
initializing the book. Certainly I've contemplated adding the V5 
compiler.  If you are interested to add ModulaWare compilers to the 
page, I have no objection. Given that the wiki can be edited by 
anyone, I view the book as a community asset rather than a personal 
asset. Therefore I wonder whether anyone else objects to inclusion of 
the ModulaWare compilers.  If not, then add the ModulaWare compilers.
The existing information is approximately chronological and I don't 
know where the ModulaWare work fits chronologically.

Thanks,                          ... Lyall E.
