For those of you watching the TeX Live perforce repository, the script
in //depot/Master/Tools/MakeImages.sh is what I use to create the 3 .iso
images. You can safely run this at home to make your own copies,
assuming you have xsltproc, zip and mkisofs installed. The zip-making
will probably be replaced by calls to Fabrice's Perl library shortly, so
you'll need a decent Perl/XML setup too.

all in the cause of lessening the mysteries...

by the way, anyone making packages or changing them should also look at
Fabrice's TPM-munging library in Master/Tools.
