I very much appreciate your patience with me, and I am grateful for it.
The question is I believe very important, for I would like to avoid
submitting a new version of the package only to be told that I did
something wrong.

As so many other packages seem to have a lot of flexibility in compiling
the citation file, what I am inquiring is: will I be prosecuted for
submitting a new version which doesn't include all the authors in the
citation file, especially since the other author is no longer contributing?
(let's say I will provide a single author, published journal article,
referring specifically to this package).

The work of the other author is duly acknowledged in his position in the
authors' list.
As I previously wrote, citing Dusa and Other (2015) implies equal citation
rights for unequal work, a thing that I am uncomfortable with. There is a
huge amount of work being involved in this subsequent version, to which the
former author didn't contribute anything at all...

Best wishes,
