AFAIK pkgs.alpinelinux.org updates its info when the package is built, therefore I think it's good to bump pkgrel. Changing maintainer should be reflected in AL services.
In the old days (not that long ago) ncopa requested that each change in APKBUILD should lead to pkgrel bump, which is a safe and sane approach, even if a bit wasteful.
Some time ago APKBUILD improvements started to be applied without pkgrel bump, which can be acceptable in case of trivial changes (like my removal of empty vars here and there), but shouldn't be acceptable in general (like _builddir -> builddir rename and prepare() removal, because different code path in abuild is performed then).
Changing maintainer, while being trivial in diff, is important change, thus I strongly suggest to not drop pkgrel bump from this patch.
