are there other options, without install-tl?

aha. this might work.
however, please be aware that each build environment is distinct, and I cannot share files between them (actually I can, but small files, it is not realistic to share large folders, since they are copied from one place to another and it takes ages), so I have to rsync the entire tlnet-final folder inside each Docker image, probably several GiB all, run the install, then remove the tlnet-final folders, since the total size is a problem for Docker images.
not exactly optimal.
hope the Utah mirror will continue to be available, and there will not be connection limits, to allow install-tl to complete an usual install.
