I have TexLive 2011 (via MacTeX).

On the CTAN website, the package ledmac is up on the 2011-07-22, version 0.8.1 http://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/mirrors/ctan/help/Catalogue/entries/ledmac.html

when I made tlmgr show ledmac

I obtain 
package:     ledmac
category:    Package
shortdesc:   Typeset scholarly editions in parallel texts.
longdesc:    A macro package for typesetting scholarly critical editions. The ledmac package is a LaTeX port of the plain TeX EDMAC macros. It supports indexing by page and line number and simple tabular- and array-style environments. The package is distributed with the related ledpar and ledarab packages; all three packages are in need of a new maintainer, since the original author can no longer offer his support.
installed:   Yes
revision:    15878
cat-version: 0.7, patch 0.5
cat-date:    2009-06-03 09:23:07 +0200
cat-license: lppl
collection:  collection-humanities

do you have an idea of the reason ? how often tlmgr update the informations about a package ? 

thank a lot
