Bug Description

ubuntu (19.04) is picking up source code for the NesC tool from the wrong place.

1) The Nesc official repository is at https://github.com/tinyos/nesc.
1.1) The source force code is very old and no longer maintained. It has been superseeded by the github repository.

2) The current released version is 1.3.6.
3) The package name should be nesc (not nescc).
4) nesc does not depend on default-jre, nor perl, nor gcc-avr, nor gcc-msp430
5) nesc stands for Network Enhanced System C. Not Deeply Networked Systems.
6) 1.3.5 has issues, in particular it likes to throw an Internal Error which is fixed in 1.3.6.
7) there will be either a 1.3.7 or a 1.4.0 version released in the near future.

I'm am the current overseer though I wouldn't call myself a maintainer. While I know what I'm doing, I don't understand the nesc code.

Any questions feel free.
