APTonCD – Create a local repository in a DVD or CD disk
APTonCD will also allow you to automatically create media with all of your .deb packages located in one especific repository, so that you can install them into your computers without the need for an internet conection.
Backup all downloaded packages (via apt-get, aptitude and synaptic) to restore later.
Take with you all your favorite packages, in a removable repository where you can install then all on anytime, anytime.
Get an entire repository, or a specifc section. Simply point-and-click, and in few time you'll have an CD(s) or DVD(s) with entire main, restricted, universe, multiverse, contrib, etc.
Share your packages with your friends without Internet conection. Also, send a meta-package for him to install the same set of packages that you have.

Has this program been updated? About 1 1/2 years ago I used APTonCD and the backup portion was very easy, I have about a dozen or so PPAs that I use. However, when I attempted to restore my programs APTonCD would not restore my items (I had a total system failure) and had to manually restore the programs I had, some PPA’s were hard to find again. Not sure if it was the PPAs that would cause this (it’s the only thing I can think of). Anyway, I would definitely recommend a test restore instead of finding out the hard way like I did. I do like the purpose and ease of this program though.
