    Dear Colleagues -- Is there a (presumably low-volume) TL-Announce
    list on which changes to the TeX Live kit at CTAN is announced ?

No.  We will be updating packages more or less continuously, so it would
not be low-volume (and would be a major headache to do).

If we make any major changes to the infrastructure code, we'll announce
that in the usual places.

    I would like to ensure that my local (Rsync'd) copy is kept
    up-to-date, but don't want to run Rsync unless I know there is
    something new to fetch ...

rsync is probably faster than any other program at discovering that.
I advise simply running it daily and not worrying about it.  I doubt
your bandwidth is in such short supply, given that you're mirroring it
at all.

I did update a few packages yesterday.  They have probably made it
around to most mirrors by now.

There will be many more in days to come.  TeX hackers never stop ...
