Bug#647303: nmu: libtasn1-3_2.10-1
* Andreas Metzler <email@example.com>, 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.
