>   Release tests for (one of the) linux releases:
>   - Test that the `racket' and `racket-textual' source releases
>     compile fine (note that they're still called `plt' and `mz' at
>     this stage).
>   - Test that the binary installers for both work, try each one in
>     both normal and unix-style installation modes. (just ubuntu)
