Not that I know of. There used to be a website called or something but the guy who was running it shut
it down. It would collect statistics from gentoo users about what
packages they had installed. It was only a sampling of users though.

"apt-get install gnumed-client" seems just as simple

Well I was referring to the simplicity of the package itself. Compare
the ebuild file to a debian deb package.

I don't see how it can as it is not simply a "Python add-on".

There are many packages that use distutils that are not python
"add-ons." Actually I don't really know what you mean by "python
add-on." And all python packages in gentoo go into
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages whether they use distutils or not.
Standard procedure is to put all the *.py stuff there and if an
executable in the $PATH is needed a script is put in /usr/bin that
runs python.

0.2 is not released "just yet". Which would be the file you
used to generate the ebuild from ? We certainly continue to
have tarballs.

The build is grabbing the following URL:${PN}/GNUmed-client.${PV}.tgz

where ${PN} is the packagename (determined from the ebuild file name),
and ${PV} is the version. So:
