The wording on the wiki does seem clear:

"Send mail to rel-eng at fedoraproject.org asking the package to be
blocked from the appropriate collections in which it is retired."

I used devel in my message since that's where it would be removed from
first.  I don't know if it'd be slightly clearer to say branches
instead of collections.

(And I take this as a yes that I'll need to follow that step.
