I guess Ian is waiting for the discover 1 rename, as it isn't useful
to upload discover 2 before discover 1 is out of the way. :)
Looking at the subversion repository, I suspect there are some patches
missing compared to the packages in the debian archive. Do you known
if this is true?
> Yes, I think we agreed on this plan.
Good. I am executing it then. I'll start by updating the alioth CVS,
and ask for people to review the changes. When this is done, I'll
upload a new version and wait for the ftp-masters to do their thing.
When the new discover1 package is in the archive, it should be safe to
upload discover2 into unstable.

Because I had this strange idea that it should be possible to install
both on the same system. After trying to do the change, I discovered
that this was probably a complete waste of time, and decided to do the
conflicts trick instead. :)

Yes. And forget the renaming of files. :)
