AFAIK, the only .iso image you provide is the one here:


frozen with the TL 2013 release.

Hence, yes, I would like to make my own .iso image in order to provide
during my LaTeX courses an up to date version of the TL, and hence
avoid that ``a user runs "tlmgr update" [and] he downloads zillions of
packages again'' :)

Okay, thanks for the advice.

Best regards.
