Open Group Policy Management MMC snapin - navigate to Group Policy Objects - Right-click and choose Back Up All...  this will backup all your GPO objects.

To use the backup in the future, create a new GPO, right-click on it and choose Import Settings.

If you want to save the report of your settings, navigate to Group Policy Objects - Right-click on the one GPO and choose Save Report.

If you look at the report of the GPO, you should be able to see if there are Domain specific settings that may need modifying.  I haven't tested this but I don't see why an import would cause any problems cross-domain.
