It is impossible to recreate a PPA with the name of a deleted one (for now?). However, if there are no people following the PPA, it should be fine to delete the 2.6.35whatever and later upload a replacement 2.6.32whatever. This is perfectly possible (e.g. see https://launchpad.net/~bzr/+archive/daily/+packages?field.name_filter=builddeb&field.status_filter=&field.series_filter=lucid where the published version is 2.5.1, but 2.6 was previously published) The thing you need to be aware of is that if anyone *is* following your PPA, they will not get any updates to the package in question until they manually remove the erroneously versioned package - if this is a problem, then the standard thing to do is to version your package as 2.6.35really2.6.32whatever Max.
