Any idea about how to do it?
The packages section of your kickstart file is marked by the tags "%packages" and "%end", so if 'egrep -m2 -n "%(packages|end)" /path/to/kickstart.ks' should return two line numbers (say 19 and 121), so if you sed -n '20,120p' /path/to/kickstart.ks|grep -ie "^[a-z0-9@-]" you'll have the groups (prefixed by the "at" sign), deinstallations (prefixed with a minus sign) and package names.
