They are hosted in a repository. If one is running openSUSE it is a one click 

Just click this link and it will take care of everything.

Same as for Debian where one just does apt-get install gnumed-client and 
hoppefully will be able to do apt-get install gnumed-server soon.

It lives here:

In the so called buildservice which is a server farm with different

can be done through a shell script.
