Re: dh_installexamples is zipping a file

Hi Nico,

are you calling dh_compress later on in debian/rules?

From the man page:

| By default, dh_compress compresses files that debian policy mandates
| should be compressed, namely all files in usr/share/info,
| usr/share/man, usr/X11R6/man, files in usr/share/doc that are larger
| than 4k in size, (except the copy-right file, .html and .css files,
| and files that appear to be already compressed based on their
| extensions), and all changelog files. Plus PCF fonts underneath
| usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/

Cheers, Til
