I don't know if it's better but here we go:


or if you prefer longer versions:


Other ideas for forcibly removed:

--include-removed / --include-missing / --with-missing

None of the above really "speaks" to me but for self explanatory
option one would need something like this:

--include-manually-forcibly-removed-and missing-due-to-no-auto-install

Sounds mysterious ;)

No problem, you can resume with full speed now ;) I just committed my
patches (r. 14500). Most notable changes for users:

- 'tlmgr update --self --all' is now fully suported on win32 (i.e. it
restarts tlmgr to complete updates if necessary)
- 'tlmgr update --self --all --dry-run' is now also supported (on all
platforms) with simulated restart
- 'tlmgr -v update --self ...'  will activate debug support also in
the win32 batch updater

It should be available tomorrow.
