Thanks for the patch!
May you please submit a patch against Org mode git repository -
https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs/org-mode.git, as described at
https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html ?

Also, may I know if you have an FSF copyright assignment? If not, you
also need to add TINYCHANGE to the commit message - see

> Fixes copy-file error when publishing to the current directory.
> Don't leave behind the old tangled files when publishing.

Please quote `rename-file' and `copy-file' like I do - it is our commit
message convention (https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html#orgd7441de)

> -  (mapc (lambda (el) (copy-file el pub-dir t)) (org-babel-tangle-file 
> filename)))
> +  (mapc (lambda (el) (rename-file el pub-dir t))
> +        (org-babel-tangle-file filename)))

I think that it would be nice to add a brief comment why `rename-file'
to the code as well.  `copy-file' looks innocent there from a first
