Hi Denis,

Ok, in this case there is no DVD/iso version of what is in the frozen state.
The last tlnet dir is the only source, and is currently still on CTAN,
and will be later available on some archives.

Very close to 2.
* updates of normal packages have stopped a bit earlier due to
  freeze of Debian pre-release
* binaries are more uptodate with many bugfixes backported into
  the Debian packages
