The primary key for the database

  • latin name would walk a long way.
  • chinese names
    • chinese names in latin transcription(pinyin), all letters lower case w/o white spaces, e.g. "Jin Ying Zi" -> key: jinyingzi
    • but this may lead to duplications http://pinyin.info/news/category/misc/dictionary/
    • diacritical signs and apostrophes (which are used to mark pronounciation) would be a bad choice for a machine readable primary key.

The TCM-Plugin shall use a free data collection and display chinese herbs
and medical drugs in the GNUmed frontend with an easy usable interface to
generate prescriptions.

== Longer explanation ==

This project is seperated into three work packages.

a) definition of an exchange format for chinese herb/drug information

b) provide a python tool, for information gathering and colaboration.

c) implement a tools that create data packages from the Web-content, that 
   can be locally installed.

d) implement a plugin for the GNUmed frontend that displays that information.
