I am just being careful to avoid for the clinical information to be packaged 
(repackaged) inconsistently between the different plugins within GNUmed because 
it risks to be confusing and thus to give rise to mistakes.

Presently the EMR tree plugin shows

        Unattributed episodes
        Health issue 1
        Health issue 2 etc (may be past history item)

whose episodes may be closed or (if not closed) "open" implying active

and whose health issues (including past history) can be

        active (or not)
        relevant (or not)

but which does not show family history items unless recopied into a Health 

The Notes plugin shows (by default)

        episodes which are not closed
        health issues which are relevant


        … health issues which are Active (but not relevant) are not listed, and

        … clicking in Notes the checkboxes adjacent to:
                Include:        [  ] closed episodes [  ] non-relevant problems

        makes no difference to the listings of Health Issues (it affects only 


1) should Health Issues that are Active be displayed (even despite that someone 
overlooked to check 'relevant' -- think of a case of something that while 
active may need checking but when inactive does not need to appear in the Notes 

2) is there a bug if [  ] non-relevant problems fails to expose matching health 
issues (since episodes cannot themselves be relevant, only the parent item can 
be) ?
