Lintain changelog-file-not-compressed error: how can I fix this?
I'm getting this Lintain error for my package called "gav":
E: gav: changelog-file-not-compressed CHANGELOG
CHANGELOG is the upstream changelog for the source package and it is in
the package source root directory. I have it listed in my debian/docs
file along with the upstream README file. It says I can compress it
using 'gzip -9'. I tried this, and modified the debian/docs file...but
then I get some error while creating the package:
dpkg-source: cannot represent change to CHANGELOG.gz: binary file
dpkg-source: warning: ignoring deletion of file CHANGELOG
dpkg-source: building gav in gav_0.7.1-1.dsc
dpkg-source: unrepresentable changes to source
Thanks to anyone who can help me.
