[tex-live] Strange tlmgr output today

Just now I rsynced to update my local copy of the entire tlnet repository.
Then I did `tlmgr update --list` as usual to see if any of my actually
installed packages needed to be updated. But I got some weird output,
involving the word "keep":
$ tlmgr update --list
tlmgr: package repository /stuff/texstuff/tlnet (verified)
tlmgr: saving backups to /stuff/texstuff/tlbax
keep: l3experimental : local: 46720, source: 46085
keep: l3kernel : local: 46720, source: 46085
keep: l3packages : local: 46712, source: 46085
keep: tex4ht : local: 46728, source: 46699
keep: texlive-docindex : local: 46711, source: 46664
tlmgr: no updates available
I've never seen anything like this before. What's going on, and what will
make this output go away?
I tried `tlmgr update --all`, but as it said, there were no updates
available. Subsequent invocations of `tlmgr update --list` keep producing
this odd output.
