If they are getting notifications for the package, then leaving a
comment for the old package is a good idea and will give them a heads-up.
Which you've done, so that's all that can really be expected of you. :)

But fundamentally, this is all about the votes and comments. Most
commonly, I think, merge requests are used to join together two packages
for a split package (in which case they will continue to get the same
pkgname under a different pkgbase).
