Let me make some short annotations: I'm writing the "Freeware"-category in the CHIP-magazine and because of this, I am always researching for useful and interesting software - that is the reason why I found "Tex Live 2015". In this section I always write a short description of the tool and present it with screenshot to our readers. In my opinion it is very useful to put this software on our DVD in order that anybody can test the software without downloading it from the internet. We always use the downloads fron the official pages to avoid any problems applying the software like installers etc. In the description text I could make a cross reference to the "TeX Collection DVD".

If you want to put it on a DVD, you have two options:
- use the status at release time from the downloadable iso images
- use the tlnet directory from the CTAN mirror. Runing install-tl from
  there will do the very same as the DVD installer, only based on 
  the tlnet status of the day copied, including all updates up to this time.

All the best
