Pushing all branches & tags to the new repo should suffice, and updating
the packaging accordingly of course.

That's correct, except that you won't reassign #705208, you will claim
it by setting yourself as the owner:


Also note that wnpp documentation linked in devref 5.9.5 mentions "To
actually adopt the package, upload it with your name in its Maintainer:
field" which is not entirely correct for team maintained packages where
the Maintainer field uses the team address and Uploaders field the
actual person.
