I seem to remember we discussed this, and a separate distribution à la Context
Minimals is difficult to put together. We reached the conclusion that the best
solution was to make a separate TL repository.

It would not be very hard, I even started preliminary work on it, but I'm
unlikely to finish soon (due to real-life reasons (in a word: thesis), I'm now
just doing what needs to be done before TL2010, and I'll probably be inactive
for a while after that). Of course, anyone is welcome to take over the project.

Anyway, I don't feel there is an urgent need for that: TL2010 pretest images
will be available in a few days, and normal packages can be updated during the
year without any problem. Only when Luatex 0.7x will be out will a separate repo
be interesting again, if the latest version of a package requires this version
of LuaTeX. (At this point, I hope I'll be back in the loop, and will still
volunteer for maintaining lualatex-dev TL repo if needed.)
