[tex-live] in the future, you can modify the update model?

Hi Pablo - I'm not sure what you're asking.

The source tree (Build/source in the repo) does get updated as the year
goes along, thanks primarily to Akira. You're free to compile it
yourself any time if you want to live on the bleeding edge.  Akira also
updates the binaries in his w32tex distribution continuously.

Recently, some of the Unix binaries are also compiled on farms and so are
also available more or less any time, thanks to Mojca and Norbert.

We can't undertake to import new binaries continuously in the main
repo. You, or anyone, could set up an additional TL repo for it if
sufficiently motivated.  --best, karl.
