[maemo-users] How to (re-)download DEB packages with APT

To list everything you have installed:

dpkg --get-selections > package.list

You'll need to clean that up a bit (just the package names and all one line)
but I'll leave that as an exercise for the reader.

To download all the packages:

apt-get -d install package.list

-d will just download the packages to /var/cache/apt/archives and won't
actually install anything.  If you want to store them for later I'd mount
that directory to some sort of file server via NFS or samba before running
apt-get and save yourself the hassle of moving them somewhere else after (or
risk running out of space)
