Currently I have TexLive2016 with some packages installed via tlmgr. Now I would like to switch to the 2017 release and I was wondering if it is possible to somehow install the same packages in the new release without having to look them up individually.

Partiularly, I was thinking about something like exporting a list of the installed packages and then installing packages based on that list in the 2017 release.

    Untested: maybe you can combine tex.stackexchange.com/a/56012/89417 with a bit of text editor find and replace to get a space-separated list of packages and then paste this list after tlmgr in a command prompt for your new installation? – Marijn Jun 28 '17 at 19:31
