Yes, for the new package, with an action of "rename from <old package>".

I'm considering to also add a changelog item "renamed to" for the old
package. I'm somewhat puzzled why the renamed packages are not available
on the mirrors, despite there being no such record yet. FWIW, the
renamed packages are

       name        |            action             | submitted_date
------------------+-------------------------------+---------------------
