In a July 2017 emailing, TUG announced the TeX Live companion repository TLContrib, for contributed packages that cannot be included in TeXLive itself. The announcement has a link to the website:

Questions: Is it feasible to add this repository to TeXLive Utility.app? 

                 Are there any snags in doing so? For example, would this allow putting TLContrib packages into a local texmf tree (including ~/Library/texmf, if that’s where one has put local packages) so as to avoid losing such packages when the next release of TeXLive comes along?
