If you mean

there is no history as it just has been created for TL2010.

As Herbert noticed there was a discussion in  mactex list if tlmgr was
ever used to update binaries and I can recall it happened in TL2009
before prerelease and release. My proof is a bit indirect as I
installed TL prerelease in September while asy 1.88 has been
stabilized only in October.

Actually my question about logging the size was related of this
discussion (to distinguish between real and "fake" updates).
