While I agree with the renames proposed in PRQ#18272 through PRQ#18276,
it is considered good form to bring up such issues in the package
comments first to give the current maintainers a chance to deal with the
rename themselves.

Given that you have already uploaded fresh packages under the new names
today, I suggest adding the current maintainers of the old packages as
co-maintainers of the new packages: at least some of them appear to be
active, e.g. r-gdal was updated just today.

Procedurally it would be better to have filed merge requests instead of
deletion requests to merge the old into the new name: this preserves
votes and comments and gives a clearer indication of what happened to
the old package.

Best regards,
