It seems a complete archive (compared to other ones) because it started around that period.
Indeed the request was announced in comp.lang.modula2:

Yes, oberon related posts started on comp.lang.modula2, however comp.lang.oberon hold a lot of very interesting topics that can't be missed. I'm happy that this archive has been found.

Does anyone have a tool for downloading this archive? I'm lazy to write a download script :-P
