Adoption of a package that doesn't need work (yet)

Hello mentors,

I recently filed ITAs for eukleides[1] and xeukleides[2]. However,
since there had been a QA upload[3] not long before, I don't have any
"real" work to do on the package yet.

I'm not sure how I should actually adopt these packages. Should I make
a new package only modifying the maintainer field (and thus cause
users to upgrade the package for no visible reason)? Or should I wait
for a better occasion to upload an updated package (for example a new
upstream version or a bug fix)?

Thanks in advance for your answers,

PS: I already posted this message 10 days ago, but since I didn't get
any answer, I post it again with a (presumably) more explicit title.
