upgrade to my sponsor before the 8th of October. (By the way, is freeze
time minus 10 days the deadline for uploads ?).
The situation you described qualifies for a group maintained upload.
You might keep the original maintainer in the Uploaders field for the
sake of politeness because a complete hijack is regarded rude (even
if the facts you describe would justify it IMHO).
Kind regards and thanks for your efforts
