In regards to this post. This is something that has been troubling me for
a looong time.

List / Timo , have you checked this out ? :

They claim that is portable between distros and doesn't touch each distros'
package manager and can also roll-back versions.

I've been struggling with CentOS 7 and Ubuntu versions for the last
eight years and it seems really tempting.

At the moment, I don't have the time or stamina to pursue this.
Some feedback on this would be really, really nice :-)
