JFTR: Since gnuhealth modules are just another set of Tryton modules, there
should be not a big problem to package them in the same generic way as the
other base modules. The infrastructure to allow for a correct mapping of
gnuhealth series -> tryton series -> debian release, which so far is not
possible to do on itself, was built since a while on

I launched a while ago the same question on this list [0] and got really few
feedback. While the procedure above for me would be the way to go and I would
do the packages (as already stated), I don't see any value in investing my time
in packages deprecated more or less by upstream. Even more as Luis favors to
my knowledge the installation and maintenance of a gnuhealth installation by
scripts. The Pros and Cons of this concept can be discussed, but certainly I
don't want to get in the way of the project respectively its maintainers.

So first question for me to be answered: are those packages welcome at all or
are they considered as irritating and distracting from the supported
installation way?
