RISCOSe - What happened and does anyone still have CVS?

A RISCOS SWI emulation layer for GNU/LINUX type systems? :lol:
https://sourceforge.net/p/riscose/code/ and http://riscose.sourceforge.net/

Not updated since 2002, but many many Stardot contributors have done a LOT in the 17 or so years since, in respect of other projects.

So given that this was claimed to be under GPL, can someone that's able to consider grabbing this and putting into a Github style repository where those interested can potentially make use of it with more recent tools..

The RISC OS port to Linux is probably the new version of this and the one to support - https://www.riscosopen.org/forum/forums/3/topics/9068

It looks like RISCOSe was more like WINE, a translation layer for SWI's, without needing the RISC OS rom code as such. :)
