I have fetsche /silver from SourceForge.  I do not understand why
you write about big differences. The biggest difference is that
/silver contains .arch-ids subdirectories. AFAICS essential differences
are tiny (869 lines).  /silver has tla-1.1.tar.gz (IIRC removed
from /trunk) and /trunk has PATCH49-50.  Also, /trunk has added ChangeLog
to some subdirectories. 

BTW: I run:

diff -ru --exclude=.svn ../axiom1/silver/axiom/ silver2 > s_s2.diff 2>&1

where ../axiom1/silver/axiom/ contains current SourceForge trunk and
silver2 freshly checked out /silver. That gave me 1081 lines of differences.
201 lines are messages about .arch-ids subdirectories.
