Hi Debian Qt-KDE team,

I implemented partially an Apt backend for the Shaman package manager [1]. For 
now it just fetches data for presentation and installation proposal. Shaman is 
much nicer than KPackage, has a cleaner interface than Adept, both now 
unmaintained. An advantage Shaman has is that it is package management 
unaware. This functionality is implemented by plugins.

I ask you to checkout [2] the source and try it. I have some doubts on how to 
implement repositories. I am thinking of getting the Origin key as present in 
the release file.

Also, is any one familiar with PolicyKit? I can not get the helper to work on 
my Lenny system. And the KPackageKit interface makes little sense to me.
