I believe you are mistaken, Jaromir: According to 
https://release.debian.org/ we just entered "soft-freeze" where no _new_ 
packages are allowed, and on February 5th (minus 10 days to migrate!) is 
the full freeze.

So assuming the new release of abGate do not require introduction of new 
binary packages, I believe there is still time to get this new upstream 
release included.
