We had python-gear 0.5.5 build and uploaded to our Precise apt.wikimedia.org repository (T84294). I noticed I forgot to ask to get it uploaded to the Debian project. It is currently 0.5.4 ( https://packages.qa.debian.org/p/python-gear.html ).
Source package is on git:
Git ssh: ssh://git.debian.org/git/python-modules/packages/python-gear.git
I have migrated it from Debian svn to git repo and released a new Debian version 0.5.5-2 which clear out some lintian errors.
