"You should set the package maintainer to Debian QA Group
<packa...@qa.debian.org> and submit a bug report against the pseudo
package wnpp. The bug report should be titled O: package -- short
description indicating that the package is now orphaned."
Besides, while it doesn't imply you shouldn't make an upload that only
changes the maintainer (unlike 5.9.5. Adopting a package), I think it's
the usual practice to not make such upload.
