I am not clear what

        the form in which it is supplied in a country

has to do with

        a solution that fits every needs


Is it a case where the GNUmed project might have access to different sources, 
where it may be helpful to pull down (at different times, from different 
countries) different sources in order to be able to most flexibly create an 
update if one source goes offline or becomes unavailable?
