Forgive my ignorance here Rahul, but does that mean apt-rpm does what
yum would do? Would it work with the usual set of the repositories for
fedora? And if I use synaptic do I still get to use yum on the command
line?

I also came across the home page for apt-rpm[1], it seems the project
has been abandoned. An article on wikipedia[2] says the lead developer
has moved on to develop smart, which he considers as the successor to
apt-rpm.
