It'll basically be an install-log utility plus explanation of how to use it and the lists it generates ("xargs action < /var/install-logs/package").  I'm basically done with install-log (slight variations on Gerard's code), but I'm adding cutesy little features like quiet mode, force mode, and pre-chroot mode.  I think I'll give it an /etc/install-logs.rc file so that the list of exclusions can be made more configurable.

I have yet to see it, but no objections..just a suggestion...

also include a ~/.install-logs.rc file, in case a user may want to use
it without installing it to the system proper...

If this package is what I think it is, it could be useful for anyone...

btw, where can I get it so I can look at it?

wouldn't that sort of destroy the purpose? :)
