Because it succeeded, and there is no system in place that deletes the temp directory?

> Seeking to update yesterday's install of "scheme: basic" from my re-rsynch'd local repository, I launched "tlmgr" (now somewhat confusingly called "tlshell") and found that it needed to update itself before it could update my local installation.  I allowed it to do so, and it reported :
>> tlmgr.pl: package repository C:/TeX/Live/2021/Pre-test (not verified: gpg unavailable)
>> tlmgr.pl: saving backups to C:/TeX/Live/2021/tlpkg/backups
>> tlmgr.pl: Preparing TeX Live infrastructure update...
>> tlmgr.pl: Backup option not implemented for infrastructure update.
>> TeX Live infrastructure update in progress ...
>> Detailed command logging to "C:\TeX\Live\2021\temp\update-self.log"
>> self update: texlive.infra (58052 -> 58101) tlperl.win32 (54383 -> 58075)
>> Infrastructure update finished successfully.
>> You may now close this window.
>> C:\TeX\Live\2021\bin\win32>
> Note in particular « Detailed command logging to "C:\TeX\Live\2021\temp\update-self.log" ».
> May I ask why the log file is stored in "C:\TeX\Live\2021\temp" (which could easily be purged, without realising that it might contain something important) rather than (e.g.,) "C:\TeX\Live\2021\logs" ?
