All that went rather quickly. I think in less than an hour, with time differences and all, it was all set.
One "bug" though. For some groups, I received a notification that I was added again. For some, there was none, although I was indeed added again. A bit of confusion there. Unsure why.
One advantage of doing this over christmas, was to send "best wishes" at the same time and getting in touch with all my friends.
Would recommend :)
As one of my good friend said (he follows this account via RSS), you can update Mastodon and say the #Signal number transfer was smooth. Indeed, it was.
I did follow Signal instructions to the letter: https://support.signal.org/hc/en-us/articles/360007062012-New-Number-or-New-Phone#new_number_android
I also made sure to inform all the groups why I was leaving, giving them my new number. I did the same with friends who I knew would not have it. I specifically asked one person per group to make sure to bring me back in the group after the transfer.

AWS joins the Blender Development Fund — blender.org
I'm glad #Blender gets money for development and improvements. But I don't understand this move from AWS. Makes little sense to me.
"This boat-shaped particle is 30 micrometres long and can propel itself using a chemical reaction. Researchers 3D-printed the particle and coated it with metal. This catalyses a reaction in the hydrogen peroxide solution in which the particle sits, to produce gas that pushes it along." https://www.nature.com/immersive/d41586-020-03436-5/index.html
