Could we perhaps talk you into keeping the apt and yum config files
out of the atrpms package?  Otherwise it will conflict with any apt
and yum package in the distro or provided by third parties that don't
follow your practice.

Also, consider what happens if multiple people have the same idea that
you had, of bundling supporting files with apt/yum config files.  It
means one can't install supporting packages for more than one such
repository, which IMHO is a very bad idea.
