htdig: htmerge and htnotify after htdig -a

To keep my database searchable even during a dig I would like to
use the '-a' switch.

If I run 'htdig' with the '-a' switch alternate work files
are been created. I do it by running the script
'rundig -v -a' (correct ?) or should I then just
run 'htdig -v -a' (?)

But how to merge then the alternate files with 'htmerge' being
the actual database. Would just running 'htmerge -v -a' be the correct
thing to do ?

What else do I have to take care off.

Sorry about this question but I couldn't find an answer yet ?
