Description:

Meta Backup is a very handy tool to backup your software selection and repositories in a deb meta package. Beware this is not a full backup solution but comes in very handy when setting up systems using only the same software selection

This version is to be used on the Gnome desktop environment or some other GTK DE.

Can be used on all systems where aptitude is available.

ok.... since the beer taxi was unreachable tonight I managed to implement, translate and package the new version.

CHANGES:
Dialog UI for the cli version
seperate backup file for PPA's
Translations: NL, FR, DE, SP, EN

Also from now it's very easy to create your own language files and I will start working on a pro version which will include an option to edit the control files.

I agree it could be more n00b friendly. At the moment when you include the ppa's and sources.list you must install in a dirty way.

dpkg -i my-meta-backup.deb
apt-get update
apt-get -f install

Creating 2 debs would indeed be more user friendly for also a gui can be used.

I tend to like quick and dirty and i'm pretty lazy so that's why it's not perfect.

Since people start asking for translations also I might as well add new features.

Meta Backup should create 2 .deb files: firslty install a .deb that adds the PPAs and then install a second deb which has all your applications as dependencies. I didn't try it (as I need a second computer for that) but in theory it can't work using only one .deb for both of these operations.
