at least for my scenario (using rsync on Linux, writing to msdos usb stick)
I do not get any directory entry "update-tlmgr-latest.exe" if I don't use
speaking about the loss of information I do not /need/ this entry, since it's
"only" a link/pointer/reference to the "latest" update-tlmgr-r*.exe.
so right now I could "easily" decide which one of those two copies
might be the "latest" one for me:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 koenig root 1009454 Sep 16 05:33 update-tlmgr-r15310.exe
-rwxr-xr-x 1 koenig root 924301 Oct 6 03:34 update-tlmgr-r15651.exe
but as I'm humen==lazy and human==error-prone I decided that I *must* have
the "real" one and only update-tlmgr-latest.exe (as a copy of update-tlmgr-r15651.exe,
taking some extra disk space of course).
so, depending on
(a) if you already got a copy of update-tlmgr-r15651.exe, and
(b) you like to sort/select the "latest" exe yourself,
your milage (or mileage? sp?) may vary, but *I* /need/ to use option "-L"
to rsync TeXliveto be happy... ;-)
still (maybe even more?) confused ? ;-)
