Hi Debian Qt-KDE team, I implemented partially an Apt backend for the Shaman package manager . 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  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. Comments?  http://drfav.wordpress.com/2009/12/01/introducing-shaman-a-new-universal- package-management-frontend/  svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/sysadmin/shaman
