How can I see what has been up­loaded to CTAN?

The up­load is pro­cessed by the up­load man­agers. As soon as this pro­cess is com­pleted the data is up­dated in the cat­a­logue and vis­i­ble in the por­tal within one hour.

After the new con­tri­bu­tion is made avail­able on the cen­tral server it is an­nounced on the mail­ing list ctan-an­nounce – un­less the up­loader has not pro­vided an an­nounce­ment text. This usu­ally hap­pens a day af­ter the in­stal­la­tion on the cen­tral server in or­der to al­low the mir­rors to pick the change.

After the new con­tri­bu­tion has been up­loaded and be­fore the pro­cess­ing by the up­load man­agers the re­ceived pack­ages are listed on the page Un­pro­cessed Uploads.

Dur­ing the pro­cess­ing the up­loaded con­tri­bu­tion is not vis­i­ble pub­licly.
