Nooooooooo please don't do that ;-) install-tl then is a directory
and the installer itself, not a good idea ;-)

Yes, exactely ;-)

When did you do that??? It must be quite some time, or you have
a copy of that mirror. 

I checked this moment that in the texlvie.tlpdb at the above site
there is:
	name FAQ-en
	category Package
so definitely not "category Documentation"

FFurthermore, the package AroBend does not exists anymore, it is called
around-the-bend, ...

So I am a bit surprised about these messages.

Best wishes
