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 contents changed
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.
