Add no more cached packages

Registered by Rafael Proença on 2006-10-28

APTonCD should have a option to add packages that already installed, but is no more in the apt-cache (probably by consequence of an "apt-get clean").
APTonCD will get a list of installed packages and cached packages. The packages that are installed but not in cache will be downloaded again.
Obviously, APTonCD shouldn't add/download packages that already are a part of the standard set of applications that already came in the default installation of the distribuition, only extras packages should enter in the media.

Whiteboard

By using synaptic and marking all my installed packages (takes a long time), and then creating a download script I was able to download all the .debs into /var/cache/apt/archive and then create a APTonCD for all my installed apps.

APTonCD should only call `apt-get -d install xxx` if it doesn't find the requested package.
