Belive it or not we actually do try to keep track of it...

And yes people have been looking into the various stuff...
But there is no reason to really bother about it as tex rarely get's any
commits/releases. Not to mention any bugs that would require constant
upgrades... The one thing that I'm interested in myself is a way to split
all the TeX spells into their own small parts so that users can get more of
a choice of what bits and pieces to install... But it's a PITA the last
time I tried doing that...
Also TeXlive is primarily distributed as an ISO that should be just burned
to dvd/cd and used like that...
