*This* is the problem I tried to address: the absence of a unified
access to this info!
It looks like CTAN has it (via “Maintainer” links), but this info is
not incorporated into TeXLive infrastructure.

Sorry if I was not clear enough!
I do not care (at least now ;-) about this package. I just used it a
litmus test: “Farar” is rare enough so that I could grep the whole
directory tree ./tlcfg without getting false positives.
This was just a test to see that the “Maintainer” field is INDEED lost
when packing for TeXLive.
