Fonds Ricoeur

There's a new Ricoeur website in town: Fonds Ricoeur (HT Newsletter of Phenomenology). Unfortunately, the English section is still under construction so all the information is currently in French. Here's their blurb on the purpose of the site:
Paul Ricœur is a major twentieth century philosopher, because of the wide range of his thinking and the world wide impact of his work. This Web site helps to discover or to go deeper into his life, work and thinking, and to continue research on subjects he was interested in. It gives a virtual access to some documents from the “Fonds Ricœur” : so you may sometimes feel you are entering the philosopher’s personal library! This exploration of Paul Ricœur’s thinking leads up to dialogue and research, which this site encourages.
P.S. "Fonds," from what a few online searches show, means "melt." I'm not sure I understand the significance...

I think here it means something more like 'stash'.
