generally those packages are the same but have been split as to avoid
cyclic dependencies. Make sure that the package you're removing is not
the source of those patches/files.
- Replace the package template with the following:

```
# Template file for '$pkgname'
pkgname=$pkgname
version=$version
revision=$((revision + 1))
archs=noarch
build_style=meta
short_desc="${short_desc} (removed package)"
license="BSD-2-Clause"
homepage="${homepage}"
```

- Add (or replace) the INSTALL.msg with the following:

```
$pkgname is no longer provided by Void Linux, and will be fully removed from the repos on $(date -d '+3 months' '+%F')
```

- After the specified time remove the package from the repository index
- Remove package template.
- Remove the package from the repository index
or contact a team member that can do so.
