Ok, this means I misunderstood and maybe even broke information on

It has one section on "local upgrade" and one on "net upgrade". I had assumed 
these in both cases to refer to the same, single, system-wide postgres database 
"gnumed" and that with the "local upgrade" one simply depends on 
already-downloaded files and which could therefore be run without internet 

        sh 10 11

I had assumed the "net upgrade" to achieve the same thing, but using an 
internet connection.

After examining its differences include:
- needing the internet connection
- depending on an official release from 
and therefore unable to be run against what is in the CVS between releases

"Local upgrade" *can* be applied to an unreleased database version but
1) as previously warned should not be on a live DB because there is no plan of 
fixups to non-official (interim) versions of the database such as is the as-yet 
unreleased v12 and
2) the user creates or repoints, in gnumed/gnumed/ a Gnumed symlink pointing at 
the full specification to /client 

Do I now better understand the above to be only (at best) partly correct, and 
that it is possible to have a systemwide version of a released Gnumed database 
(such as v11) and a non-systemwide (local user only) version of, say, a 
pre-release v12?

Also at the point where an official database release becomes available, and 
assuming was not run against a non-release script in CVS but 
instead from an official server tarball or deb, is there any difference in what 
would be achieved from any among 11 12
        gm-upgrade_server 11 12

and does it matter whether as root or as sudo?
