No. That doesn't matter. But the very old catalogue files at TeX-Live does.

As I told at my first posting, I've done

        rsync -avz --exclude=.svn tug.org::tldevsrc . 

to get the current TeX-Live. After this there is a directory 
Master/texmf-doc/doc/english/catalogue with a copy of The TeX Catalgue. I 
found: it is a very old copy of The TeX Catalogue (more than one year old). 
It does not correspond with the packages (or the version of the packages) 
e.g. at Master/texmf-dist/ of TeX-Live and it is much older than The TeX 
Catalogue at sarovar or CTAN, too.

So either:

- "rsync -avz --exclude=.svn tug.org::tldevsrc ." does not result in a current 


- the copy of The TeX Catalogue at TeX-Live is very old and should IMHO be 
updated (either to a version that corresponds with the packages of TeX-Live 
or the the newest version) or removed

That version and license information is empty at a lot of tpm files is another 
problem, that doesn't matter for the release of TeX-Live.

I know my english is not very helpfull for clarifing the problem, so maybe I 
should never start to talk about ...
