I did some fairly substantial editing work on the A2 article on
Wikipedia a few years back, although I can see that others have done
much more work since then. I also note that the Oberon Attical it self
has had a lot of work done on it since I last looked at it.

I would really like to see the Wikipedia coverage expanded -- not to
in any way denigrate Peter's hard work on the wikibooks documentation,
I think that more and better descriptions on Wikipedia would be a net

I wrote about Oberon myself recently, put a link on this list about my
coverage, and got some fairly stinging rebuttals which told me that my
coverage was out of date and not accurate. :-(

I emailed directly to the people that questioned my article, asking
for a bit more info and offering to write an updated article -- but
sadly none of them replied to me. So if I could get more and better
information myself I would not only be happy to work on the Wikipedia
article but to provide it with some more coverage in the Register… but
it's a bit hard to find out, as you've discovered.
