Isn't that exactly the same when you have a new maintainer. surely this involve
uploading a new cabal file with the new maintainer stated in there.

Also you can't edit already uploaded hackage cabal files, you still can (should ?)
always make a point release to advertise to the world that you're the new
maintainer and the fact the repo url has changed.

But again, if there's strong feeling about the personal view vs the project
view, again, there's the way to solve that problem on github too.
