LXer: Duplicating subsets of package selections between systems

Published at LXer:

I'm building a pair of Ubuntu systems for kids. For a variety of reasons, including lack of time and hardware problems, this has taken far longer than expected and I ended up with one running 9.10 (Karmic Koala) and the other 10.04 (Lucid Lynx). Since the Karmic system has the most testing effort into it (reviewing games for stability and kid appropriateness) I needed a way to duplicate the selection of games on the Lucid system while filtering out everything else since some packages are release-specific.
