[tex-live] building tex live + tlbuild/tldistro lists

More changes will be more coming, but I think it is time to try an
initial compile of the TeX Live sources.  Volunteer builders for TL, you
know who you are :).

I have sent a message with more details to the (new) mailing list
tlbuild at tug.org, to which I've already subscribed the volunteer builders
of the binaries we distribute as part of TL.  I also wrote down some
procedures, etc., at http://tug.org/texlive/build.html.

Perhaps a good time to mention that a few weeks ago I also created
tldistro at tug.org for discussion related to including TL in "downstream"

Feel free to join either list as you like
(http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/tlbuild resp. tldistro), but let's keep
them focused on their respective topics as much as possible.  The whole
idea of creating them was that not everyone on those lists wants or
needs to be on this general list.
