Package was deleted, but seems to be still there

Asked by Tal Liron on 2010-09-21

I've deleted two packages from a PPA, because they were created via some mistakes I made with learning how to use Launchpad...

The problem is that, even though they no longer appear in the PPA, trying to re-upload my fixed version gets rejected:

"The source prudence-groovy - 1.0-0 is already accepted in ubuntu/lucid and you cannot upload the same version within the same distribution. You have to modify the source version and re-upload."

I do not have the old source files, and they no longer appear on the PPA for me to download. I seem to be stuck. Help!
