Bug#647303: nmu: libtasn1-3_2.10-1

* Andreas Metzler <ametzler@downhill.at.eu.org>, 2011-11-01, 19:28:
nmu libtasn1-3_2.10-1 . amd64 mips . -m "[multi-arch] fix differing files in /usr/share/doc. Closes: #647283"

As of now, binNMUing Multi-Arch:same packages will only make things worse, because changelog will be modified.

See <http://bugs.debian.org/647283>. There seems to be a heisenbug, /usr/share/doc/libtasn1-3/NEWS.gz on amd64 and mips is differently compressed. The package is simply using dh_compress, a rebuild on amd64 does not show the brokenness.

FWIW, it affects many more packages. Most often it happens on amd64 and ia64, though other architectures are sometimes affected as well.

Also, it's not clear that the bug in gzip has been actually fixed.
