I recently filed ITAs for eukleides and xeukleides. However,

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)?
Yeap, you should modify debian/control to change maintainer field, and
also modify the debian/changelog (use dch :-) and change the version
(it should be something like: xxx.xx-x and you have to add xxx.xx-x+1)
that's all, so, you don't have to wait 'till your package need real
work to adopt it.
Thanks in advance for your answers,
