Shouldn't this package have a hook for glibc upgrade, the way e.g. the packages “at” and “cronie” do, so that the service will be restarted after glibc has been upgraded?

Additional info:

See attached example.

I have earlier (years ago) seen error messages from crond (cronie) that it (or its child processes) couldn't find or load certain locales after a glibc update. The children failed to launch in these cases. I'm sorry that I can't provide more details but it is several years go. Now I'm just wondering if incrond children won't have the same problem. I haven't used incrond for long enough to know if this is the case, so this “bug report” is perhaps more of a question than a feature request, but there are only so many task types to choose from.

Edit: inserted missing "not".
