Re: Packaging OpenEMR officially for Debian

Hi Andreas, Sebastian, Sam (and everybody else),

It definitely would be nice to have an official debian package; was thinking about this awhile back and made the following wiki page to track this project [1]. Here's the code for the current OpenEMR debian package (and plop the openemr package at /var/www/openemr/) [2]. Will be helpful to know if the current debian package contains any things that need to modified to get considered as an official debian package.

Regarding the OpenEMR upgrade mechanism [3], OpenEMR also has a database upgrade script (there are actually two, one to deal with database upgrades and the other to deal with upgrading the access controls). The current OpenEMR debian package automates this process.

Dear Andreas:

Good to hear from you again.  I loved the conference and was very glad
to meet you in person.   I discussed this with Brady Miller after my
return from Geneva.  One of Brady's concerns was the the ability of
upgrading existing OpenEMR installations using a standard Debian
package.  i was hoping that you would address this with him?

Sam Bowen, MD
Ho do you guys handle the upgrades? Note I assume you are talking about database upgrades ? IN GNUmed we just ship updated files. Actually upgrading the database is up to the user. They have to call a shell script (upgrade-db.sh)

at LSM in Geneva I was watching the talk of Sam and we had some
discussion afterwards about packaging OpenEMR for official Debian.  As
far as I can see on OpenEMR download page[1] Brady Miller has created
some binary package.  I used this as some inspiration to create some
preliminary and totally untested packaging stuff at[2].

Brady, Sam, would you mind watching the video of my talk at LSM which I
linked from my talks page[3] to better understand the ideas behind
Debian Med and perhaps try to work together making OpenEMR an official
package?  This could for instance be done in some Mentoring of Month[4]

Kind regards
