Oh, I believed it had entered sarge a long time ago.  Yes, I agree
that the latests version should go into Sarge.  (I'm one of the more
passive maintainers. :)

Cc to debian-release, to pledge that the release managers include
version 1.2005.04.23 of discover1-data in Sarge.

These are the changelog entries since the version currently in sarge
(1.2005.01.08).  As you can see, quite a lot of new hardware are now
