Hi Karsten,

alost all has already been written by others. I just want to add that
it is possible to install TeX Live from a DVD, then point the tlmgr
package manager to the network installation repository and update from
there. The daily updates are short and low bandwidth is needed if
users start updating soon after the DVD release.

Let me make some short annotations: I'm writing the "Freeware"-category in the CHIP-magazine and because of this, I am always researching for useful and interesting software - that is the reason why I found "Tex Live 2015". In this section I always write a short description of the tool and present it with screenshot to our readers. In my opinion it is very useful to put this software on our DVD in order that anybody can test the software without downloading it from the internet. We always use the downloads fron the official pages to avoid any problems applying the software like installers etc. In the description text I could make a cross reference to the "TeX Collection DVD".
