Ok, there are some issues mixed here:

1) You install the ChangeLog file with dh_installdocs which is a bug
   in your packaging, since it will already be installed with
   dh_installchangelogs as changelog.
2) lintian complains about the changelog not being compressed but what it
   really should complain about is the duplicated changelog file, which
   it would make it clearer that this is your fault ;)
