Lots of people prefer yum for Fedora, because it's written in Python.
And there are way many more yum repositories for Fedora. However, I find
apt4rpm perfectly adequate for Fedora. 

FYI, only a few Fedora mirrors are apt-enabled. One list is available
from http://www.fedora.us/mirrorlists/

apt-get mirror-select seems to do a decent job, though if the base list
is screwy, there could be problems.

This article describes one way to incorporate apt (or yum) into up2date:
