    I know that TL2010 will be frozen very shortly. Has that happened 

No.  Do you really think you could miss such an announcement :)?

It's probably more like "somewhat shortly" than "very shortly" ... I'm
expecting to do it in a couple/few more weeks.

    reason? I ask because I see that there have been updates on CTAN but I

When in doubt about this, visit ftp://tug.org/texlive/tlnet/archive/ (a
big directory) and note the dates on a recently updated package.  E.g.,
the current biblatex-ieee* is dated 05/10/11.  This directory is the
master for tlnet.  If it is updated and CTAN/mirrors aren't, it's a
propagation problem.

>From there, it goes to uk.ctan.org (systems/texlive/tlnet).  If that
directory is up to date, then it's a ctan mirror propagation problem,
write ctan at dante.de and/or your mirror admin.  
If uk is stale, then it's a tug <-> ctan propagation problem, and 
you can write ctan at dante.de and/or me.

You may also find http://dante.ctan.org/mirmon of interest.  It shows
that Utah has not been updated in 5.7 days (Nelson ... ?), and gives
some other mirrors that are current.
