When installing debian, selecting the option to install
   SQL database
installs postgresql software including the database server and seems also to install an unprivileged user account "postgres" although I did not yet find where that is documented.

However the installation of "SQL database" seems to create no directory

making me wonder if the above something normally needed to be done manually? The above would seem needed before
can be made as per instructions for initializing postgres at

I do not mind the manual work... I am only just checking if it is any sign of a problem in what is supposed to have been "normal" postgres installation behaviour by tasksel.

Do I just go ahead and create it as root and then chown to belong to postgres?

One more question about where the gnumed data should "live" on a server... might we suggest, for consistency across deployments, any preferred place where the server would keep its gnumed data? Is
the most logical place to put it? Or will this directory "belong" to postgres, and would the gnumed data (at the system level) better belong to a gnumed system account like
