A praxis would say

apt-get install drugref-server
apt-get install drugref-gui

$> df-upgrade_database
$> df-update_data_from_the_web

This would give the praxis the latest packaged data.

- drugref-server and drugref-gui would be exactly like gnumed-server and 

- drugref-gui could be freediams

- in fact, freediams, could be both in one (and currently is)

- df-upgrade_database would apply changes to the database structure

- df-update_data_from_the_web could be run any time (even by
  cron) and check for new data packages available from, download those and
  install them, such data packages would be prepared from
  other sources on the web by someone of the drugref team

The GNUmed client could either

- start df-gui (freediams) with appropriate command line
  arguments just as we do now with other applications/tools

- access a drugref API directly whether that be a web server
  (such as Oscar has) or XML-RPC (such as Horst initially wanted)
  or command line programs without a UI

Does that make things more clear ?

BUT - as I have said repeatedly in the past - this is a
WHOLE NEW PROJECT to be done by someone else. I am currently
hoping to make FreeDiams interested in taking baby steps
towards becoming that.

The fame would be immortal.
