You are right here and I hate this as well.  Just to clarify the reason:
I tried to implement the modular philosophy behind GnuMed into single
packages for every module which is able to run in a single environment.

The problem is that this modular design is absolutely not represented in
the source archive structure.  If the source would be structured in a better
way packaging would be much less confusing.  My goal was to sit down
next to Karsten and try to convince him to reorganize the source to
reflect the structure GnuMed has:

    - common files for all Modules
    -- common files for server
    -- common files for clients
    --- Modules which can run separately should be in separate directories
        (may be as a pool)

Definitely.  This is the reason why I do not often update the Debian packages.

I guess upstream welcomes your help as well as I because I can't become
involved in this field to much because of time constraints.

Thanks for your work on Gentoo
