Dear Robin,

I only have one TeX Live tree, which is a TeX Live 2013 one. And this
one has lualatex-math from 13 January 2013.

However, I have discovered now that the mirror I’m using seems to be
partly outdated. It’s the mirror

    <http://ctan.vgtu.lt/systems/texlive/tlnet/>  .

Some of the files in


have last been modified in July 2013, but the lualatex-math files have
12 March 2013 as their modification date. They don’t contain the version
from 11 March 2013 that your TeX Live 2012 contains, but the version
from 13 January 2013 that I have on my harddisk.

So should I consider this mirror unreliable? Should someone tell its
admins to fix these issues?

Best wishes,
