Yes, it is in the svn repo, but you can get it in many ways, the list of
collections you could get with
tlmgr info --json collections
tlmgr info --json schemes
Or you just download the texlive.tlpdb from tlnet, and then do
grep ^name collection- texlive.tlpdb
to get the list of collections and similarly with scheme- for schemata.
> Another question, can the profile contain, scheme and also collection be defined?
Both can be used. scheme selects the group of collections required by
that scheme, and additional collections can be added via collection
> Or there should be only one of two? What takes more priority between the two(scheme or collection)? The docs https://github.com/TeX-Live/installer/blob/master/install-tl#L2953-L2955 makes this unclear to me.
Since there is no way to *disable* a collection there is no priority
issue, a collection is included either because the selected scheme
includes it or it is directly specified.
