It's not realistic to expect the ftpmasters to prioritize package name
changes above other tasks that are critical for the release.  The
packages in question have already been accepted into the archive under
their current names; if you really believe that having the wrong package
names makes these packages unreleasable, then you will have to get an
ftpmaster to make these changes, but otherwise you should continue to
get the packages ready for release under their current names.
