when upgrading hdactl, service is not restarted
when hdactl is upgraded, hdactl should be restarted as part of the upgrade
this is to release new versions of software seamlessly and properly over time

technically it may be better to do what in redhat's world is called a condrestart
conditional restart - restart, but only if it was running already. i.e. if stopped, it remains stopped
but this is not a big deal with this service, since it has to be on all the time for amahi to work
other services and debs we make will have to respect that, however.

are you sure this is fixed?
i do not think we have code to take care of this restarting on updates.
i think the updates occur, but not te restarting.
i have been learning how this is done in the deb world (pre* scripts) and i do not see code in the deb to do this. eFfeM please correct me if i am wrong.

checked and it is fixed although probably not in the best way (guess ideally the pre* scripts should be used).
near the end of the postinst script is a line:
(service hdactl restart || true) > /dev/null 2>&1
that'll take care of restarting
(and yes, I guess there is too much in postinst and some things could/should be done differently; I'm not really a deb packaging wizard).
Propose to close this one.
