What packages? Those literally weren't packages. They were:

pkgdesc="placeholder to reserve pkgbase/name for me, will become real
package soon"

with the commit message: "assign pkgbase to me".

I don't see the need for uploading confusing packages that don't do
anything and at the current point in time, if someone attempts to
install them, they get an empty package. From a technical, procedural
standpoint, it would make a lot more sense to first upload the *actual*
packages, then submit merge requests to transfer votes and comments to
the new package...

... rather than deleting the existing package by moving its votes and
comments to something with a completely pointless PKGBUILD that doesn't
do anything, resulting in the issue that for the duration of your "real
soon", there is *no* package, at all.
