is this feasible?

how to save the currently installed pkgs for reinstall?

You can save a list - YaST->Software Managment->Extras->Export
package list.

There's no such menu entry under YaST->Software Managment->Extras
on my system? Leap 15.0

I see it under "File".

I do see YaST->Software Managment->File->Export yes, thanks.
That saves the list as XML, which doesn't seem so helpful for the OP's
purpose. The XML file is apparently intended for use with AutoYaST.
