Well , some of the devel guys used to read and answer questions on the
list until some time ago.. looks like they are too busy working on FC2
I believe that the current decision is to make yum/up2date/apt
compatible with each other. According to some old messages on the devel
list (posted just after FC1 was released) , this is the current project
that the main developers for yum and apt are working on. The common file
structure has been discussed already and there's some tests being done
behind the scenes, so it may be just a matter of time before they become
compatible with each other..
