Installed. That is not bad, for example in amsldoc-vn we now have:
	 name amsldoc-vn
	 category Package
	 revision 13530
	+catalogue amslatexdoc-vietnamese
	 shortdesc Vietnamese documentation.
	 longdesc This is a Vietnamese translation of amsldoc, the users' guide
	 longdesc to amsmath.
which is something good to know.

I am not sure about that, maybe someone can comment on that.

Don't know, but some of them, in fact most of them, are in fact not
specific to texlive.

Thanks a lot for all your work, that is of great help!!!!
