    - After install, use tlnet on CTAN for package updates

Your understanding is correct.  Although I can't easily run the GUI
installer right now, the idea is to make it easy for people to say they
want to install from the net (ie, CTAN) after the initial installation.
It's just a yes/no button, right?  That's what it is in the text installer.

The thing is, there's no way to explain all the background in one line.
So all I could figure to do was give some clueful keywords ... tlnet,
CTAN, etc.  Would this be better?

 After installation, get package updates from CTAN

    - Multiple defined tags (first column) are not possible, please fix it.

This is related to the new multiple repository support.  You can give
each repository a tag, e.g., tlcontrib.  But you can't give two
different repositories the same tag (of course).

How about:

  Repository tag name already used: <tag> <url>

It's not clear to me from a quick look at the code whether this is a
"can't happen" kind of message or the message that comes up if the user
tries to define a new repository with the same tag name as an existing one.
