Bonjour Torsten,

the keyword that would have given you the answer is ’compress’ instead of

aqwa『~』$ html2text /usr/share/doc/cdbs/cdbs-doc.html | grep -i compress
    * dh_compress
To avoid compressing files with a .py extension:
The following files are excluded from compression:
automatically. The system can handle compressed patches with an additionnal .gz

aqwa『~』$ grep -ri compress /usr/share/cdbs/1/
/usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/debhelper.mk:# DEB_COMPRESS_EXCLUDE
/usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/debhelper.mk:#   Regular expressions matching files which should not be compressed.
/usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/debhelper.mk:# This rule is called after stripping; it compresses, fixes permissions,
/usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/debhelper.mk:	dh_compress -p$(cdbs_curpkg) $(call cdbs_add_dashx,$(DEB_COMPRESS_EXCLUDE)) $(DEB_DH_COMPRESS_ARGS)
/usr/share/cdbs/1/class/kde.mk:DEB_COMPRESS_EXCLUDE = .dcl .docbook -license .tag .sty .el

Maybe you can try to use DEB_COMPRESS_EXCLUDE to avoid compression of PNGs.

By the way, is /usr/share/info the best place for your images ?
