Are you sure ?  I shouldn't think so. The ~/.gnumed/ is IMO created
by the first run of as well as the gnumed.conf therein.

Users run the client, not the server. To them GNUmed *is* the client.

I am currently not aware of any but I'd be happy
to remove duplicates. The tarball creation script does,
however, copy into docs/gnumed-client.conf.example
exactly as to *avoid* duplication in the source. I recently decided
to drop the actual gnumed-client.conf.example and document all
options in which has much higher chances of being
properly up to date.

Well, real packages (like the debs) wouldn't *have* the at all.

Not the .example (because that's docs/) but probably the init
script. They aren't used yet, however, anyway.

Why ?
