Well my earlier posts, plus the above, motivated me to look at the debian package control files . Packagers of other distros might find those contents (method below) helpful. On a debian system they are located in the directory below =========== from which I grepped just those related to gnumed-client.

Mainly from what I found below I notice there is a
and a

whose evolution Andreas recalled no split purpose, and each now with stuff in them. I wondered whether there is any basis to separate anything between the two above. AFAICT gnumed/Gnumed maybe arose from mirroring of the CVS but this directory setup may not serve on installed machines. There *is* nowadays no "upstream" (in the tarball)
        <extracted tarball>/Gnumed
which is a symlink to a real directory
        <extracted tarball>/client

so can we make a choice that either:

1) the client/ parts that go in /usr/share/gnumed go no deeper, only into /usr/share/gnumed and we drop usr/share/gnumed/Gnumed
2) we henceforth use instead usr/share/gnumed/client (pruning ../ gnumed/Gnumed) and as part of this clean up would consolidate
        /usr/share/gnumed/bitmaps (and contents)

 The output of

        cat gnumed-client.conffiles

shows a subset of

        cat gnumed-client.list

some of which I have truncated:

address@hidden:/var/lib/dpkg/info$ cat gnumed-client.conffiles

address@hidden:/var/lib/dpkg/info$ cat gnumed-client.list
