Almost all of what you are doing is way outside my area of expertise,
but one thing strikes me as very odd.  You write :

and my question is : is there really a tetex-20120119
(i.e., a version of tetex dated 19th January 2012).

The reason I ask is that I understood that Thomas
Esser ceased work on tetex many moons ago (2006,
in fact [1]), and it therefore seems very odd
indeed that there should now be a tetex release
dated 2012.
