Request #20422 has been rejected by eschwartz [1]:

It is not possible to purge personal data by deleting and re-uploading
a package, since the git repo is persistent.

I've communicated privately with the user and based on that
discussion, I've used git-filter-branch to purge the git authorship
information and maintainer comments, using my Trusted User

Either way, package deletion wouldn't accomplish anything, but the
problem is nevertheless solved.
