[tex-live] Tutorial for setting up own TeX Live package repositories seems outdated

Hi Norbert,

thank you so much for your fast answer! Creating the `texmf-dist/web2c'
directory indeed solved the issue for me.

However, there was another issue coming up: The script


uses the Windows line ending style (`\r\n'), which causes the
`tl-update-containers` script run to fail in my environment. Since it is
a shell script, I would propose to convert the file to Unix line endings.

After changing that, I was able to create the repository as desired.
Thank you once again for your fast and competent support.

Kind regards,

Sincerely yours,

M.Eng. *René Schwarz*
