nmu libtasn1-3_2.10-1 . amd64 mips . -m "[multi-arch] fix differing files in /usr/share/doc. Closes: #647283"

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.

Ewww.  I really don't want to be papering over this without knowing what
happened.

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

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.

Hello,
Good point.

I was not aware this was a widespread issue, looks like I searched the
wrong way. 

To clean things up I am closing the binnmu request (647303) since a
binNMU would not fix the issue. Further discussion should happen on
647303 (the original report against libtasn1-3).

Thanks, cu andreas
