Where is the tex-live repository, and how do you obtain TeX sources
from it?

Does the current tex-live distribution support bidirectionality?  Or
does one have to patch it to obtain that functionality?  My
understanding is that Knuth never supported bidirectionality, even
though he agreed that it was a good thing.
