Severity: normal


I want to request the removal of the uptimed package

package works on long running servers, but breaks with non-rtc systems
[1], leap second [2], and general bugginess that hasn't been solved in
years [3]

Some time ago I discovered tuptime  which has none of this bugs, a
responsive upstream and a modern codebase.

Ricardo (tuptime upstream and Debian maintainer) has agreed to add a
note to tuptime's long description about uptimed (for people doing
`apt-cache search uptimed`) and a migration script [4]

I'll submit a patch to Buster release notes regarding the removal.
