Well, often to the list here.

Thanks for the offer.

The procedure is quite simple, the following is the approximate order
of things:
- Karl (or whoever) ddoes updates to the svn repo
- at some time in the night in Europe our cron script is kicked in
- the catalogue is svn updated
- the tlpdb is rebuild with the information of the catalogue and
  the changed files
- tlnet is updated an dpushed out

Now if the updated to the catalogue happens *after* the update of the tlpdb,
the changes will not make it into the new tlpdb.

THe tlnet tlpdb on the *following* day will contain the changes to the
catalogue data, but since we do *intentionally* *NOT* update a package's
revision if the only change are catalogue data, this new information is
*not* pushed to the user computers, although it is available in the tlnet
on the CTAN mirrors. So new installs will have the updated catalogue

I don't see a much better way for now, and it is anyway too late to think about
it now, since here it is 1am ... 

Good night

The disgust and embarrassment (or 'ongar') felt by an observer in the
presence of a person festooned with kirbies (q.v.) when they don't
know them well enough to tell them to wipe them off, invariably this
'ongar' is accompanied by an involuntary staccato twitching of the leg
(or 'chipping')
