Re: Deleting uncompressed Info/Doc files at upgrades
It strikes me that perhaps a less involved solution to this problem might
satisfy Peter's needs, while not building yet another layer of complexity
A simple script be written to grep the output of 'dpkg -L packagename' for
.gz files in man or doc directories, and test for the existence of
ungzipped versions. If it finds files ungzipped, it could gzip them back
up. This script could be run before upgrading a package.
If such a script were written, Peter could use it to manually fix up
his "corrupted" ;) docs before upgrading. If it works well, perhaps
it could later be hooked into dpkg so that it is automatically run
prior to upgrading a package.
