Dear All,

Libraries packages on PPA follow now the same schema as future debian's
package for KiCad.

So packages are renamed as:
kicad-library => kicad-libraries
kicad-library-footprints => kicad-footprints
kicad-library-packages3d => kicad-packages3d
kicad-library-symbols => kicad-symbols
kicad-library-templates => kicad-templates

 Future update/downgrade from/to between ppa and Ubuntu official KiCad's
package should be easier in the future.
 Ubuntu official Kicad's packages are not yet on new shema (work is in
progress on Carsten side, big thanks to him) but will be ok on the a
near future.
