If you use active state and all or most of your packages were installed using ppm (or ppm-shell) then you can create a list of all your installed packaged usiing:
ppm profile save [ *filename* ]
Write profile of configured repositories and installed packages to
the given file. If no file is given then print the profile XML to
And then (try) install them into your new installation using:
ppm profile restore [ *filename* ]
Install the packages listed in the given profile file. If no file
given try to read the profile from standard input.
Which would be great if a) all the packages we needed were available as PPDs and if all the packages for which PPDs
are available for 5.10.1 were also available for the newer versions; b) if the restore didn't stop every time it encounters a package that isn't available; C) if the profile mechanism would handle non-AS repositories.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
