Thanks, that's very good. Make sure that CRAN knows that when you upload.

(And I would correct the License: field to 'GPL (>= 3)' removing the
reference to a file. I can't think off the top of my head of a good example
of an 'adopted' orphaned package, there are probably good ways to properly
credit the previous contributors. I have used inst/AUTHORS before, maybe that
would be a suitable for you too.)
