Yes, with only a little additions:
1) announce that you are going to maintain your branch in usual place 
(py-transports maillist?), happy to receive patches etc...
2) Each time you make any significant improvements to the branch - announce it 

So people will see that transport is alive and just developed/maintained now 
by different person. You will get people's attention as a result and, as  
Tomasz said, your branch will become official. That's how it it works, there 
is no such thing as 'official' or not. Just good code and bad code, live 
project and dead project, that's it.
