Versioned TeXlive distfiles
As a result of my inquiry several months ago, TeXlive is now rolling out versioned distfiles. Here is one example: https://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet/archive/bxjscls.doc.r52927.tar.xz. The old (unversioned) file names will now refer to symbolic links to the versioned files. It may take awhile for all the files to show up on the CTAN mirrors.
I think they are also making these files reproducible so that checksums will no longer arbitrarily change, but I am not certain how far this has progressed.
I think we can start work on removing some of the special handling of TeXlive packages, though.
