pkgsync is a tool for keeping multiple machines reasonably similar and clean. Packages can either be in a `must be installed', `may be installed' or `must not be installed' list (which is presumed to be distributed separately using a tool such as rdist or cfengine). pkgsync will take care of meeting the demands put down in the lists, and then removing everything that is not in the `must' or `may' list and is not necessary for their operations (as determined by aptitude).

    Changelog

    2015-07-18 - Steinar H. Gunderson <sesse@debian.org> pkgsync (1.25) unstable; urgency=medium * When listing installed packages, filter out everything after the colon, so that we do not get commandlines that try to (e.g.) install libfoo and set libfoo:amd64 to manually installed at the same time, causing flip-flopping between runs.

    2015-06-07 - Steinar H. Gunderson <sesse@debian.org> pkgsync (1.24) unstable; urgency=medium * Remove trailing whitespace from packages, fixing warnings like “Couldn't find package ""” from aptitude.

    2013-12-04 - Steinar H. Gunderson <sesse@debian.org> pkgsync (1.23) unstable; urgency=low * Properly anchor the kernel version regex when using aptitude globbing; patch from Tollef Fog Heen. (Closes: #731241)

    2010-03-20 - Steinar H. Gunderson <sesse@debian.org> pkgsync (1.22) unstable; urgency=high * Deal with changes introduced in aptitude 0.6.1.4-1: Add '?upgradable' first of all at dist-upgrade line, so all packages are upgraded, not just the one explicitly mentioned in mayhave/musthave/maynothave. * Update aptitude dependency to 0.6.1.4-1, sine it's not immediately clear when '?upgradable' was implemented. * Use full-upgrade instead of dist-upgrade. * Upgrade to Standards-Version 3.8.4 (no changes needed). * Upgrade to debhelper compat level 7. Update debhelper Build-Depends; no other changes needed. * Add ${misc:Depends} to Depends line, to keep lintian happy. * Remove empty prerm fragment.

    2007-11-20 - Steinar H. Gunderson <sesse@debian.org> pkgsync (1.21) unstable; urgency=low * Use aptitude update instead of apt-get update.

    2007-11-20 - Steinar H. Gunderson <sesse@debian.org> pkgsync (1.20) unstable; urgency=high * Remove a few extra quotes from the aptitude options.

    2007-11-17 - Steinar H. Gunderson <sesse@debian.org> pkgsync (1.19) unstable; urgency=high * Instead of doing "yes n |" in nightly-pkgsync, which seems to confuse newer aptitude, give proper dpkg options to do sane things with conffiles.

    2007-09-23 - Steinar H. Gunderson <sesse@debian.org> pkgsync (1.18) unstable; urgency=low * Update the manual page with the fact that --aptitude-glob is default.

    2007-04-17 - Steinar H. Gunderson <sesse@debian.org> pkgsync (1.17) unstable; urgency=low * Switch to aptitude globbing by default. * Add NEWS.Debian file describing the change.

    2006-08-27 - Steinar H. Gunderson <sesse@debian.org> pkgsync (1.16) unstable; urgency=low * Add "set -o noglob" to make sure wildcard patterns aren't attempted globbed. This is a bashism, so change the shebang to #! /bin/bash.
