Yes, the maintainer field can be updated at any time. This is an
existing package, right? What is the name of the package?

No. If this is an existing package you cannot change the name in an
svn/git commit. If you feel the code base (and purpose?) of the package
has changed significantly then we'd recommend submitting a new package
with a new name.
