Hi Albert
I don't know shaman very well, but I think they address different needs 
: PackageKit is a completely working piece of software, used by many 
distributions. KPackageKit allows KDE user to avoid using the gnome 
interface, and keep the same tool (ie. less work for the distro 
maintainers). I don't think it's real competition to shaman, and even if 
it was, competition can be a good thing for both projects. Vim doesn't 
hurt emacs, and Firefox doesn't hurt Konqueror...
