Hum, I just tried, after updating my local copy from Cambridge's node,
and install-tl isn't executable. ftp-ing to tug.org/texlive/tlnet/2008,
I can see install-tl isn't executable there either.

Is there a way to make it executable on the mirror so that mirroring
with a tools that preserves permissions (such a rsync) allows to run
install-tl directly, without needing to chmod it first?


PS : Thanks for this change!
