Since the package is maintained in the debian-science git repo I took the liberty of pushing the new upstream and updated the packaging (last touched in 2009). It's been a few years since I did any packaging but I think it should be in pretty good shape and I used pbuilder to build and test it.

I’m not a DD and thus cannot sponsor an upload, but here are my thoughts
from having a quick look:

1. Your d/rules is fairly simple; you should switch to the dh(1) sequencer

2. You should enable as much hardening as you can[1]; if you do 1., you
   get some of this for free, but unless you have a good reason to you
   should add “hardening=+all” to DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS

3. Your Vcs-Git should be
   (note the .git and lack of a trailing /), as given at the bottom of
   the cgit summary page
