The first thing that stands out to me is:

1) The documentation on the wiki is pretty much all there but it's a bit
hard to navigate sometimes.
containd some incorrect directories, like server/utils which I changed,
but the main problem with this page is that it is confusing to know
which conf file to use. And at first it says to do this:

/ --conf-file=<a config file>

then, it says to do this:


Well if we look inside, we see what it is really doing...but why 
all the confusion on this page. Just tell us what to do any we'll do it. And 
calling 'sh' is silly when #!/bin/sh is in the file. That's just a little 
thing, but there are lots of little things.

When I run, it the first thing I get:

-(~/cvs/gnumed/gnumed/server/bootstrap:$)-> ./ 
create symbolic link `Gnumed' to `client'
re-bootstrapping public database
dropping old database
Database "gnumed" will be permanently removed.
Are you sure? (y/n) n
making data for locale AU
./ line 17: command not found

and the first thing I notice is, "making data for locale AU," but I don't live 
in Australia....

It looks like in redo-public it is using bootstrap-de.conf and 
bootstrap-au.conf, which is curious to me why someone would want to configure 
for an AU locale and a DE locale.

Well, that's it for tonight! More fun next week when I get back.
