Ok. After a little messing things up, I think I now have a
working automatic procedure to update the SVN silver repository
with the changes that you commit to the tla axiom--silver--1

In the end I decided to leave SVN /trunk alone and to create
a new top level root called /silver

This should also get migrated to the Google Code repository
during the next 24 hours or so (the great google willing ;).

To the best of my ability to research the subject, it seems
that having two (or more) roots in an svn repository will not
cause any problems.

The reason I decided to leave /trunk was that in fact there
are quite a large number of changes from /trunk to your new
/silver and resolving these differences will take some time.
If I just applied your version to /trunk a number of changes
there would end up being reverted, or vice-versa. It is better
I think, to compare the changes more closely and then for
someone to send you patches against the new /silver for you
to evaluate and possibly apply to axiom--silver--1. That way
the automatic update will gradually make the twi roots more
nearly identical. Eventually we can remove one or the other
when they no longer serve any purpose.

Let me know what you think of this arrangement.

Bill Page.
