The plan is to package GNU Health 2.0 when it comes out, and upload it
to Debian Sid (this will be the first GNU Health release to hit Sid,
as currently we only uploaded to Experimental).
This is dependent on the different Tryton 2.8 modules being available
in Sid as well, namely the stock lot module you have been working on.
Do you have anyone in particular that could review your RFS on
bug#706957? I see you've included Andreas Tille (member of the Debian
Med team) in your RFS bug report, has Andreas sponsored previous
Tryton packages for you?

With regards to my relation to the GNU health project: I am working
inside the Debian Med team to get it packaged in Debian (and
derivatives). I have contributed a bit on the GNU Health wiki (namely
installation instructions/screenshots), but [not yet] with code. In
short: I am not directly affiliated with the project.

I do hope they are enthusiastic ;)

For sure that it would be great to have GNU Health in Debian.
The packaging of GNU Health in new Linux distributions (Archlinux and
Parabola) was mentionned as part of the main changes in the 2.0
release date announcement [0]. Luis also congratulated the
announcement of the Parabola packaging [1].

The way I see it: all GNU Health, packages are installed, but you will
only activate the ones you want to use for your Healthcare System
(that's done in the Modules section directly within Tryton).

Good question for the GNU Health developers. I believe the
translations used to be included, but were explicitly removed from a
previous GNU Health version. It does indeed strike me as something
that is not usual, as translations are most often contained in the
release tarballs.

We are working on this topic, to download the translations from Transifex at release time and include them in the modules.

I have included the Debian Med and GNU Health dev lists.
