Hi Werner,

    I'd like to ask for the final source tar ball

The release is not final -- I await Manfred's confirmation to go ahead.

That said, it appears unlikely that TL'19 will be different from the
final pretest. You can find the final pretest tarballs and tlpdb at
rsync:// (or ftp, but why). Alternatively,
as far as I can think, your existing rsync copies are the same thing. 

I don't recommend (that is, request that you don't) release anything
until after the release is public. --thanks, karl.
