Why not do what boklm suggested on Mageia-dev (2011-11-20 18:01) :
There is a directory to move old packages that are no longer needed, but
still keep them available in case they are needed later :

So you can move the package there instead of removing it :
svn mv svn+ssh://svn.mageia.org/svn/packages/cauldron/<pkg>  svn+ssh://svn.mageia.org/svn/packages/obsolete/

or alternately, as suggested by someone else :
Just svn rm<adress_sv_ssh>/cauldron/<pkg>/current I think
