Is it easier now to use apt to upgrade the OS? I'd really like to see this become a lot easier in future versions of FC. Has this been worked on?

Apt4RPM is unmainted by upstream developers who have switched to Smartpm(.org).

Wrong. apt4rpm is maintained (By Richard Bos and by me).

Apt-rpm has has less attention than before, because the principal apt-
rpm maintainer is the author of smart. That does not mean apt-rpm is
unmaintained. It's just that a person's focus has changed.

He just has released a new release, a couple of weeks ago.

I had that impression through previous discussions related to it in Fedora devel list and the fact the issues like multilib is/was there for a long time

So Fedora development is going to concentrate on supporting a live upgrade, then yum is likely to be a better choice than apt.

True, except that yum has not yet reached a shape to be usable for "live updates".


I am not sure apt does it in Fedora either
