[plt-scheme] How to find Planet package documentation

Thanks Carl. The documentation does not seem to be available from the Planet
web-site (all you get is a stub pointing you to help-desk), but, as you
suggest, the excellent docs can be found on the planet cache.

On minor oddity is that the science collection is marked on the Planet
web-site as version 2.9 while the latest version seems to be 3.0 (according
to "planet show").
