Package EOL troubles

Because of an upstream name change, some time ago, I built a version of 
suitesparse, which obsoletes ufsparse, and is now in rawhide. I have 
tried to complete the package EOL process for ufsparse (remove 
everything and check in a dead.package file), but I can no longer commit 
changes because for some reason I have been removed from the ACL. The 
next step in the instructions was to send an e-mail to 
rel-eng at requesting removal of the package from the 
repository, which I did weeks ago, including an explanation of my 
inability to check in changes to rpms/ufsparse/devel. Also, someone else 
mentioned that ufsparse should be removed from rawhide on this list 
nearly a month ago. The package is still in the rawhide repository. Is 
there something else I should have done?
