In the long run apt should probably run in it's own domain with suitable restrictions on the methods etc... but this all raises the question: How are 3rd party packages supposed to ship their own policy settings in a sane manner?
I've added rpm_exec_t entries for the apt programs in my tree.
If we are going to have apt as a recommended program or if we have some setup with yum or up2date whereby one program gets the files and another does the install (similar to the apt-get/dpkg) then we could write policy to support/enforce that distinction.
However I expect apt to be phased out, so it's probably not worth doing.
