It would be helpful if the install-tl archives had some
internal file that records the version so we can avoid
discussing problems that have been addressed.  If
there is a Changelog file that would be nice, as we
can see what changes have been made, but just
a small text file listing the problems that have been
addressed and implications (e.g., does it require
a new tlpdb file) would be helpful.
