I remember that we had some disputes regarding the GNUmed package when
to do the upgrade.  It is actually the Debian way to automate things if
possible but there should be a way out of this at least - so we could
do this if the user have acknowledged this in a debconf question.  But
these are details we will come to in a later stage of the process.

This discussion on upgrades for GNUmed and OpenEMR will be of great
interest for the packaging of VistA as well.  It would seem that we all have
similar challenges: updating a system with a database that may already
contain user data.

I will be listening with great interest...      :-)
