There's not much to be said, really. We'll have a box where the master 
tree for TeX Live will reside, and selected people will be able to
connect to it using ftp or telnet to change that tree. I will install
my master sausage machine there, and set up a Web interface so that
anyone can update TL to a new version of eg a LaTeX package like
"tocbibind" just by filling in a few fields. Thes box will serve up
CD images (how publicly, we decide next year; in the short term, just
to people on this list, so that they can test things)

the only discussion was about sysadmin and the like.
