I guess the "live tree" Karl was mentioning is our SVN repo, from which TL
2010-testing's tlnet as well as candidate DVD images will be derived.

Said otherwise, packages usually follow this way:

CTAN --(1)--> TL SVN --(2)--> tlnet

Arrow (2) is now blocked (and will soon be unblocked but with tlnet-testing as
its temporary new target). Arrow (1) will be blocked later, when TL 2010 is
nearly ready for its final release.

I hope it's clearer now.
