There was nothing wrong in your request but as it was expressed, in a
question form. How could I reply you if I'd have accepted it? How could
you apply changes to the deleted package?
Feel free to submit the deletion request again once you cleared your

There's no vulkan-sdk package in extra. If it's named in a different way
please explain, I've no experience about vulkan.

The vulkan-loader package could be freely deleted instead.

You could add a comment to the package to immediately inform all the
users that have subscribed your package.
I don't think further actions are required.
