Now (after dummy downgrade):
	$ tlmgr update --list
	tlmgr: package repository /var/www/norbert/tlnet
	12many (376KB): local: 1353, source: 13530 (update)
	afm2pl (140KB): local: 1386, source: 13861 (update)

> - 'update --all' provides option to exclude packages

	$ tlmgr update --exclude 12many --all
	tlmgr: package repository /var/www/norbert/tlnet
	[1/1, ??:??/??:??] update: afm2pl (1386 -> 13861) ... done

On actual update the sizes are not shown anymore, should it?

--exclude is cummulative:
	--exclude pkg1 --exclude pkg2 --exclude pkg3
but it is not a matching operation
	--exclude afm2pl
will NOT match afm2pl.win32 or any other package.

Hope that is fine.

Best wishes
