Well, the cddt-tools package includes a script called fakeapt that probably
does what you want.

You can get it installing the cddt-tools package from:


Or getting the script directly from the CDDT project:


The manpage is available from:


On LliureX I used that script with the CDD description to generate the list of
packages needed to install different CDD profiles. That package list is later
used to build a filter for reprepro to build a partial mirror using the given
package list.

The script I used was not generalized and I plan to review it and include a
better version  on future versions of the CDDT, but if you want to test it I
can send you a copy.
