The home page of the ocp site needs to have an overview of the history of Oberon and the different forms of Oberon, i.e. Bluebottle, AOS, ...   It also needs a statement of the goals for Oberon by ETH.
What's happening?  What about .NET?  What about cross platform development?  Why is Oberon still being pursued?  ...

A general overview is definitely needed.

We definitely need a bit more information about the purpose of OCP on the homepage and also some references to a site for more general information/history about Oberon.

The OCP website, however, is more targeted to people that already know/use Oberon ('community'). Its purpose is to provide a platform to the community, i.e. Oberon users and developers, to find and exchange Oberon related knowledge.

Note that everybody is welcome to help getting some good content on OCP. Editing Wikis is really not a big deal. Just ask for the edit password at ocp _ at _ inf.ethz.ch. (The reason why we don't publish the edit password is that we want to have an idea about how many people have access to it)

I've just added some very basic information about Oberon and OCP. Just to let you know: This is supposed to be extended over time.
We have to make sure, however, that the overlapping between OCP and www.oberon.ethz.ch doesn't get too worse.

I've just started a little overview systems about what Oberon systems/language are available (see http://www.ocp.inf.ethz.ch/wiki/Documentation/Oberon). Since I joined the team at a time where AOS/Bluebottle was already available, I don't know much about other Oberon systems than ETH Oberon or AOS.

Any volunteer willing to write descriptions of other Oberon systems?
