The D-Bus interface is documented in the man pages:

man org.debian.apt
man org.debian.apt.transaction

Currently there is only a Python client library (aptdaemon.client) and even some GTK widgets and dialogs (aptdaemon.gtkwidgets). I would recommend to use them instead of accessing the D-Bus interface directly.

Cheers,

Sebastian
