You may not have found the MacTeX mailing list at 
http://www.tug.org/mactex/help/ if that is what you are asking for.

As I understand it, perl may be obtained from CPAN just as TeXLive may 
be obtained from CTAN.

MacTeX that comes with TeXLive also has its own package manager.

CTAN has both. Not sure what you mean.
