Having installed the snapshot:

I assume it means "install nix" since I already have it installed. Which is true. I've installed it in 5.3.6, where the package is empty. Ok. How about:

> vkz at vkz-air:~/work/marketplace [master]$ raco pkg remove shell-completion
> Inferred package scope: installation
> raco pkg remove: cannot remove packages that are dependencies of other packages
>   dependencies:

Great. Now what?

> raco pkg update shell-completion
> Inferred package scope: installation
> Resolving "shell-completion" via http://www.cs.utah.edu/plt/snapshots/20131006-007d563/catalog/
> No updates available

Does that imply that checksum is the same for this package even in the snapshot? So the package is empty and I'm just wasting time? 

Package management sucks. Or I suck. Both are probably true.

Right! No MANIFEST file, which docs do say is a must. 

On the bright side. By switching to SNAPSHOT distribution I managed to install Tony's #lang marketplace which err'ed on 3.5.6. Be sending a separate email about it.
