This was actually discussed on the list when 203 was released:


Binaries for DrScheme are effectively specific to each GNU/Linux distro
version with its mix of library versions.

The effort of packaging for each distro is distributed among volunteers.

If there is not already a packaging for your distro, you can volunteer
yourself or entice another user/developer of your distro to volunteer.

203 happened right before a holiday for many DrScheme users, so more
distro packagings might be announced on the list within a couple weeks.

Of course, you can always install DrScheme from the 203 source tar file
or from CVS.  (I use the CVS version for development purposes, to always
have the latest fixes and enhancements.)
