apt can do this ;)

E.g. you build your own package that is of course stored locally. Install the
package with 'apt install <rpm name>'. Apt will install the app and when it
requires other pkgs they'll be retrieved from the repository.

Another nice is to install based on file name, like:
apt install /usr/bin/smart

apt will investigate which package provides /usr/bin/smart and will install
that one :0
