Packaged remembered and in diff after delete

Asked by Philip Johnsson

I have uploaded and built opencv 2.1.0-maverick~ppa4 to my PPA ( after I had an upload and deleted opencv 2.2.0-maverick~ppa1. The opencv 2.2.0-maverick~ppa1 is still there in some how but deleted. I get a "Available diffs" 2.2.0-maverick~ppa1 to 2.1.0-maverick~ppa4 against a deleted package. This also gives a "Failed to upload " error message as a package get rejected for being older than the deleted one.

How can I get a permanent delete of opencv 2.2.0-maverick~ppa1 from history?

Just to be clear. I broke out opencv 2.2.0 to be a own it's own setup of packages naming it opencv2.2 2.2.0. Package suit opencv2.2 should remain as 2.2.0 (2.2.0-maverick~ppa2). And I try to keep opencv as 2.1.0-maverick~ppa4. It's packages of opencv and not opencv2.2 that I have problems with.

Deleted all opencv packages again. Waited an hour and the uploaded a new bumped opencv 2.1.0-maverick~ppa5 version. Problem solved. I guess I uploaded the bump to soon after the delete.

Note for anyone wondering, I deleted my 2.2.0-maverick~ppa1 packages before they got published so no users would have downloaded anything.
