There is an easier way to receive updates from one particular mirror  
site. The documentation tells:

option [show]
option key [value]
	The first form shows the settings currently saved in the TLPDB.
	In the second form, if value is missing the setting for key is  
	If value is present, key is set to value.
	Possible values for key are: location (default installation source),
	formats (create formats at installation time), docfiles (install
	documentation files), srcfiles (install source files).
	Perhaps the most common use for this is if you originally installed  
	DVD, and want to permanently change the installation to get further
	updates from the Internet. To do this, you can run
	    sudo tlmgr option location 
texlive/tlne<clipped in PDF>
	(where YYYY is the TeX Live release year).

The lengthy form can be used when trying to update from a faster  
mirror ...



Klingon function calls do not have "parameters" - they have  
"arguments"- and they ALWAYS WIN THEM.
