Well, Peter, did you turn on the option to install doc files?

Karl, index.html is in the docfile section of texlive.infra, soit could
be that they are not installed.

I guess I have to add an exception, or we adjust the patterns that these
files are in the runfile pattern so that they are alwawys installed.
Seems to me the better solution. Keep the tlpkg/doc/* and tlpkg/man/*
in the docfiles, and the stuff in /: LICENSE, README, ... in runfiles.

Best wishes

chimney, they can rip stuff off from his sleigh.
