Package: locales
Version: 2.28-8
Severity: wishlist

You know, there is a slight gap in time when updating locales,
that all locales disappear.

This causes e.g., an at(1) job that happens to run during that time to
give e.g.,

> Subject: Output from your job      866

> sh: line 48: warning: setlocale: LC_CTYPE: cannot change locale 
> (zh_TW.UTF-8): No such file or directory

mysterious messages (Bug #923504).

Certainly your package's update script is doing something like

rm all_the_old_files
install all_the_new_files

Perhaps, as these are all mission critical files,
maybe you could do something like

copy all_the_new_files one by one on top of all_the_old_files
remove any_remaining_old_files_that_need_to_be_removed

That way there won't be any more time gaps when things will fail! Thanks.
