Lists of packages required in Ubuntu, used to generate the meta packages and determine which component (main, universe, etc.) a package is destined for.

Seeds are the lists of packages we want to include in the distribution. We have seven primary seeds, minimal, boot, standard, desktop, ship, live, and supported, that define what goes into the archive's main component. The minimal, boot, standard, desktop, and either ship or live seeds go onto our CDs and the supported packages are available from the FTP site.

Seeding a package pulls all of its dependencies into the appropriate part of the archive and ensures everything needed to build that package is at least placed in supported.
