OK. I imagine that's used by tlmgr (TeX Live Manager) behind the scene  
to update and install additional packages.

Unless I've misunderstood something, there's still something of a  
paradox here, as it's assumed you've already an installation of TeX  
Live (of this tlpkg directory) in order to be able to install TeX Live  
with it.
