Sounds like a question for fedora-devel list. I would think this would
involve :

- adding apt.rpm to the list of packages
- also packing/regenerationg 'repository-database' for apt on all CDs
   and mirrors.

Current yum repository-database 'headers' is used by both
yum & up2date.

Not sure providing duplicate of this database in apt format is what
the Fedora decision makers want to do (diskspace on CDs & mirrors -
and doing it correctly for rawhide as well) - esp when some these
groups are working on a universal repository format (or something like
that) which all tools can use.
