The web page I just sent this mailing list warns that if you have TeX installed on an earlier
system and you update it to Yosemite, there will be a long delay at the
very end of installation.
I just got a note from Ross Moore with an extremely helpful work-around.
From Ross Moore:
A colleague tells me that the way to update to Yosemite, with
one or more TeX installations installed, is to first
mv /usr/local/texlive ~
do the install, then
mv ~/texlive /usr/local
This avoids the installer archiving then re-installing that
This kind of approach may be useful with other subdirectories
of /usr/local as well.
