Yes, that's weird to me too.

Upstream is 37Mb, won't upload it ;)

I've added a "get-orig-source" target to debian/rules to get it.

Be careful that bioimagesuite_latest* would need bioimagesuite_extra* (to be
downloaded from the same website): this latter package merely contains the lib*
packages bioimagesuite already depends on (vtk-tcl, ...)

Moreover, you just get the original tarball. Renaming
to package_version.orig.tar.gz is still a manual thing (the upstream tarball
doesn't contain the version).
