The question appeared on another (MacOSX) forum


ends up with catalogue-version 1.928



contains line


Is there a contradiction?

My understanding is that those numbers have nothing to do with tlmgr:

%tlmgr update --list

fontinst: local: 7340, source: 10426

and those numbers are for tlmgr but they are not stored in installed
packages. My understanding is that number 10426 reflects both
package-name and tlmgr-repacking-version.

Would be nice to have it clarified
