This is Ok with me. I will be busy with real life until 4/15. I really hope
I find more time to work on d-i and discover afterwards.
IIRC Branden agreed to an NMU by the debian-boot Team of discover2 if
Progeny does not upload it. Ian Murduck then replied that he will upload
soon, but this has not happend since then. According to him the maintainer
of discover2 should be set to discover-workers@lists.progeny.com.

Why do you want to rename the files? I would simply put a "Conflicts:
discover (>= 2)" into the discover1 package. You probably won't install them
both on the same system.

I would rename it to discover1-data. (leaving discover-data-udeb as it is).
