Not really following this, but today as I updated a older machine where i have tweaked an Ubuntu Scratch package to be able to install it on Squeeze, I just noticed the following:
$ apt-cache show scratch
Maintainer: Miriam Ruiz <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Depends: squeak-vm, squeak-plugins-scratch, libgtk2.0-bin, shared-mime-info
Suggests: pulseaudio (>= 1.0.9)
Description-en: easy to use programming environment for ages 8 and up
Scratch is an easy, interactive, collaborative programming
environment designed for creation of interactive stories, animations,
games, music, and art -- and sharing these on the web.
Scratch is designed to help young people (ages 8 and up) develop 21st
century learning skills. As they create Scratch projects, young people
learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also
gaining a deeper understanding of the process of design.

So kudos to Miriam and thanks to everybody on Debian, yes I would have filled a bug and tracked if she had filled a bug and provide with my findings, that would have had Scratch on Debian sooner or maybe easier, but anyway I’m truly happy as I plan to have intensive use at home with Debian notebooks… and just was wondering on|if my hack would work without problems on Wheezy and upwards.
