Bit of digging showed: 
texlive-svn revision 3843 from 2007-02-01 00:27:31 +0100, 
Karl updated the catalogue in the texlive repository

So that gives a tex catalogue revision of around 7900
r7901 | robin | 2007-02-01 13:43:16 +0100
r7900 | schoepf | 2007-02-01 10:01:50 +0100
r7899 | robin | 2007-02-01 01:03:34 +0100
r7898 | robin | 2007-01-31 23:38:14 +0100

The 7900 is tagged with "Upload", so I would take that revision as the

Ok, I have checked out the revision. There is only a small problem here
that leads me to believe removing the catalogue might be the better
option (it is anyway removed upstream from texlive AFAIR)

The problem is that the gencat.py script in src is actually GPL, but the
used tcutils.py only contains
	# Togaware 2004 All rights are reserved.
	# Authors: Graham Williams
which is not really optimal.

There are more scripts like that, but they are not needed, and gencat.py
contains a GPL statement.

Should we ask Graham to fix that and give us a statement, or just remove
the Catalogue???

Best wishes


PS: Adding the stuff to the .dfsg .orig.tar.gz would be quite easy by
dropping it into
(since the file is not used at all, WHEREEVER can be everywhere).
