I'm having this same problem, that when you press the Reply button of your emailer, the reply for this list is sent by default to the poster, not to the whole list. Even right now, it's only when re-reading this message before posting that I realized the To address was amaxwell and I manually changed to tlu.

I used “ apachectl” command to start a web share, and mount the iso file in /LIbrary/WebServer/Documents/MyWeb, and then I set the repository of TLU to be “http://localhost/MyWeb/TeXLive2014”. It works, and I can get a full result of all the packages in the iso.

Given the original poster wrote he installed BasicTeX-2014 and got an iso file for TeXLive-2014, I imagine he wants to inspect all the packages in TeXLive-2014 then install them at will from that iso file, using TLU's Packages tab and Install action.

That said, I've no idea whether that would take care of dependencies: I've always installed the whole MacTeX and applied all updates whenever available.
