[Build-common-hackers] Bug#478049: cdbs: [gnome.mk] stop compressing gtk-doc files

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.52
Severity: wishlist

When building GNOME packages, please make dh_compress forget to compress 
.sgml, .devhelp and .devhelp2 files. It should be enough to add the 

DEB_COMPRESS_EXCLUDE += .sgml .devhelp

See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk-doc/+bug/77138 for the 
explanation of why these files must not be compressed. (In short, it 
breaks cross-references.)
