APTonCD - Back Up Your Packages Easily

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 get rid of the need for an internet connection entirely by downloading and burning an entire repository to a CD if you wish (well, probably a few DVDs :-D). YOu can also add .deb packages manually with the add package feature, or by dragging them in from Nautilus.
