Great! I just tried (on a Mac)

tlmgr --repository http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2010/ update --all --list

and it gave me a list of binaries to update (ConTeXt, LuaTeX, Metapost); then I checked my LuaTeX version: ``This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.60.2-2010071217 (TeX Live 2010) (rev 3736)'', and then

sudo tlmgr --repository http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2010/ update luatex

tlmgr: package repository http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2010/

And now I have ``LuaTeX, Version beta-0.63.0-2010091123''.

Very nice! Thank you and Mojca (the darwin LuaTeX maintainer)!
