I’m currently working on a major new version of the datatool package. This may take a while. Please be patient. (Experimental version available for testing.)

|glossaries without rerun

Currently I am writing a maven plugin to create output from latex. I included also defining glossaries with your package glossaries. Now I realized, that there are cases where rerunning makeglossaries is necessary. For indices I found the package imakeidx which does not require rerun of makeindex. I ask myself, and you, whether it is possible to do something like that also for the glossaries package.
Thank you very much for taking into consideration.
I'm aware that imakeidx automatically runs makeindex through the shell escape (glossaries can also do this with the automake package option) but I didn't know that it can determine whether or not it's necessary to rerun makeindex. Can you provide an example document to illustrate this behaviour? How does it determine that the locations have changed? (Especially given the problems determining the actual page number due to TeX's asynchronous output routine.) The complexity of determining that information would in all probability make the document build longer than it would be if makeindex/xindy was simply called.
