That’s good to know. Thanks!

bash-4.2# find /var/task/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/doc

It might be nice to have a `tlmgr` or `texlive.profile` “clean-all" option to create an absolute-minimum install (event if it is locked from further updates, that is fine for many embedded or server deployment scenarios).

Question: is it possible to put a list of specific packages to install in the `texlive.profile` file? i.e. specify a custom collection in-line?

Thanks for your help with this!
