Admin notes

I unpacked the latest release in a pkg subdirectory in the module hierarchy. Then I created a modified version of their run script as bin/rednotebook:

#! /bin/bash
# Little helper script that runs RedNotebook without installing it.
# Note: No need to translate strings locally, since they won't be
# picked up anyway.

set -euo pipefail

# Change into RedNotebook directory.
# cd "$(dirname "$0")"
cd /common/debian/9.1/Desktop/rednotebook/rednotebook-2.5/pkg

# Run RedNotebook.
python3 rednotebook/ "$@"
