Hi everyone,

today we pushed out a new version of the texlive.infra package
shipping the tlmgr. Changes as listed from

tlmgr revision 20243 (released 1nov10):

    * try (again) not to load the remote tlpdb if tlmgr update is called without arguments.
    * fix bugs in autobackup/backupdir handling; unify error messages; on clean, also remove package backups for packages no longer present in tlpdb.
    * support keyword searching as provided by the beta CTAN characterizations at http://az.ctan.org/ (no Internet access needed for the search, though). tlmgr documentation has details. Support is also present in tlmgrgui. 

Best wishes

There was a point to this story, but it has temporarily
escaped the chronicler's mind.
