As the only active maintainer, I am, and I certainly still consider CTAN to
be the main distribution channel for all things TeX-related. My enquiries
regarding TeX Live schedules should rather be taken as a question whether
this is something that needs to be fixed right away, or whether it can wait
(e.g. until after 4ecm, which begins today).

That said, I (judging from experience) probably need a reminder every now
and then. E.g. I had planned to upload a fixed (with respect to e-TeX)
fontinst version last Christmas, but got sidetracked and spent most of my
hacking hours tinkering with OpenType fonts instead.
