Hello, Gordon.

I've got a script that compares the packages installed on two different 
machines, or between one machine and a list of packages. I create the 
reference list immediately after installation using:

   dpkg --get-selections >distribution_name.sel

Then later run my script e.g.:

   dpkg-dsel localhost distribution_name.sel
