AFAIK, just re-upload the package with your name in the maintainer field
in the control file and in the changelog file (and a new version). The
<firstname.lastname@example.org>, I think, is for taking files out of
orphaned state and off the list of orphaned packages.
The bug tracking system and package maintainer lists (i.e.,
www.debian.org/packages.html) is dynamically derived from what's actually
in the distribution.
BTW, the bug tracking system seems *very* slow at picking up changes in
the Packages files. I uploaded a new version of addressbook with my
maintainer address almost a week ago and it's still not listing.
