Just ran the code you supplied and I now have a 'package.lst' file.
The repository is now working, although I am tracking down a few unusual aspects, such as why none of my statistics add up.
13520 '.ppd' files
13517 instances of the "<SOFTPKG" string within ".ppd" files
13402 packages known to PPM (as declared on the bottom line of the GUI)
6088 filtered packages listed with the "Show All" filter (!)
I am a lot further along and a lot happier, but there are obviously still a few unaswered questions!
Nothing succeeds like a budgie with no teeth.
