We (latex project) try to discourage people sending bugs in packages we
have never seen to latex bugs address  for reasons you might guess:-) But
we do like to be told if an update breaks contributed packages (something
we try to avoid, but hard to test in advance) Probably latex-l (
is a better list. but I'll look at your logs later thanks! Mailing the
package maintainers as well can not do any harm.

There isn't much the texlive team can do as they are more or less
constrained to distributing what's on ctan (I think:-)
