You need to be aware of one fact, however:

In case a bug is discovered in what is currently thought to
be the final gnumed_v9 schema which is included in the
v9.rcX preliminary server tarballs there will then be a need
to "fix" that database. This will be done by some sort of
script changing the database to whatever it should be.

This is, however, NO DIFFERENT from when that need arises
*after* we release _v9 properly ...

I am 99.99% sure there will not be a need to change the
basic table structure which actually *stores* the data.
Anything that might exhibit a bug will most likely be in the
"dynamic" part - rules, triggers, functions, views - nothing
that really changes the data itself so the "fix" will be
non-modifying as far as the data itself is concerned.
