if you have pretest installed and the regular TL 2016 starts to be
distributed, you will no longer be able to update pretest. First you have
to change the repository location by:

tlmgr option repository http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet

Afterwards the updates will be received from TL 2016.

> 2. On 8 June CTAN updates will be reenabled
> 3. If I have a 2016 pretest, when I do tlmgr update, I will have the

> Did I have correct understanding?
