That's the kind of reply I like to get. Thank you!
Actually, my Red Hat machines use yum (I switched from apt-rpm just recently) and my Debian machine uses apt-get, quite expectedly. I wanted to convert everything to Debian unstable, but the Debian security breach changed my plans. people.debian.org is still closed, and I just cannot use XFree86 older than 4.3.0 with some hardware. I started updating Red Hat machines to Fedora.
It's exciting to learn about development of the tool I've been using until recently, but it seems I'm not going to use the results of your work until one of the following events occur:
The new apt-rpm becomes so good that Fedora switches to it.
Debian switches to RPM packages :-)
Debian and Fedora close or stop maintaining their repositories, everybody switches to Conectiva. Not likely either.
Anyway, your efforts are greatly appreciated.
