OK, I was just wondering because some people were talking about a 
program that could convert between Yum header files and APT metadata.  I 
was thinking that if you converted from the APT metadata to the Yum 
header filesthat might possibly explain why I was experiencing the same 
errors on both, but obviously that can't be the case.
