Re: functionality similar to apt-get autoclean?

Debian has this nifty feature of apt-get which is the option to
'autoclean'

It has two purposes, first it removes files from the local repository
which can no longer be downloaded and are useless.  Second it removes
packages that used to depend on a package which no longer exists.

Example:

I install claws-mail which depends on (among other things) libetpan11.

Then I decide I don't like claws-mail and remove the package claws-mail.

The next time I run autoclean (presuming that no other installed
package depends on libetpan11) it will remove the package libetpan11
since it it no longer required by the system.

Is there any similar functionality with yum/rpm?

Other than what Todd has already said, note that apt-rpm is available in Fedora. If you need it

# yum install apt
