Application: APTonCD

What it is:

APTonCD is an application that backs up all of your packages
downloaded from apt-get or aptitude onto a CD or a DVD. This is
perfect if you ever lose an internet connection or if you want to
quickly install new operating systems without having to remember a
long list of packages you needed to install.


YOu can also add .deb packages manually with the add package feature,
or by dragging them in from Nautilus.
Ability to create a meta-package with all of the packages you have
installed. This makes it easy to trick out a new Ubuntu installation
with a single command. This might be a good way to replace Automatix
with your own custom solution.
