[fpc-pascal] FreeVision Resources?

I've recently started getting reacquainted with Pascal. I learned a bit of
it back in the late '80s in college on a VAX 11/750 running DEC VMS. I've
loved PascalCase ever since.
I'm working my way through the Turbo Vision 2.0 Programming Guide I found on
Archive.org. Everything was working well, until chapter 4 - Using streams
and resources. Saving the desktop to a stream file seemed to work, but
when I attempt to reload it from the stream file I get a runtime error 101,
which is odd since I'm trying to read from a file, not write to a file. It
might be functionality that's not fully implemented. And it's something I
doubt I'd ever use, so I'm not too concerned resolving the issue. I'll
probably just move on to chapter 5 - Creating a data entry screen, which is
what I'm really interested in.
Is there a Free Vision mailing list, bug tracker, etc.?
What's the definition of a legacy system? One that works!
