I rsynced the tlnet dir today from the jmu.edu mirror, so that I have a
local copy.

I unzipped install-tl-unix.gz, which gave

I attempted to use the enclosed install-tl.  I included the flag
--repository, pointing at my local rsync'ed copy of the tlnet dir.  But
when I got the menu, I see that some of the default directory names have
"2014" in them:

 <D> directories:
   TEXDIR (the main TeX directory):
   TEXMFLOCAL (directory for site-wide local files):
   TEXMFSYSVAR (directory for variable and automatically generated data):
   TEXMFSYSCONFIG (directory for local config):

The other dirs in this list say 2015 in them.

Also, I completed the install anyway, and the file texlive-release.txt
says in it that the TL year is 2014.
