Bug Description

Binary package hint: plt-scheme

PLT Scheme has been renamed and rebranded as Racket, as has DrScheme become DrRacket. Ubuntu packages should be updated to reflect this to avoid confusing users.

For more information: http://racket-lang.org/new-name.html

(This applies to the upcoming 10.10 version of Ubuntu)

This apparently is not yet even in SID, so it would not happen until 11.04 at minimum. Also, when the new/replacement is sync'd we will have to make sure that the dependent packages, and there are a number of them, are also correctly updated. Finally, there is a current issue with plt-scheme using a local version of libffi. This would also have to be corrected when this new package is sync'd.

Hopefully when Debian / Ubuntu upgrades it to Racket, this will also resolve the bug with DrScheme (DrRacket) not appearing in the applications menu.
