The right way is to send it to the control server (control@bugs.debian.org)
In debian land, whenever you work on an RFP, change it to an ITP.
And since that'd lead to two ITPs for your case, so you should do both (1) and (2) that you
mentioned above; i.e. retitle+merge.

The following contents to control@bugs.debian.org should do the trick:

retitle 1004498 ITP: <your ITP title>
merge 1004498 <your ITP bug#>

This should help you learn the right way[1][2] for further reports, do take a look.

No need to do so, that'd be an un-necessary formality for us; just push to salsa and pass us the link. 
I have added you to our team w/ maintainer perms.

Please push it to our team's namespace, and let us know when you think it is ready.

PS: <nitpick> Your mailing client seems to append a lot of blank lines to every line on the email you reply to; and it
renders weird for me both on thunderbird and mutt - please consider to fix this </nitpick>
