I have migrated the Debian source package to git and released a new minor Debian version 0.5.5-2. See T89952: Upload python-gear 0.5.5-2 to Debian project for details.

As pointed by Filippo, the Alioth repository does not have an upstream branch containing the source. There is a debian/watch file though so one can use uscan to grab the tarball from upstream:

uscan --force-download --rename

Should spurts a python-gear_0.5.5.orig.tar.gz in parent dir which git-buildpackage magically find out instead of using upstream branch / upstream tag.

Confirmed. Thanks a lot @fgiunchedi

From T89952 : Debian Developer Michael "mika" Prokop kindly reviewed 0.5.5-2 from the alioth git repository and uploaded the package to the Debian Project.
