Never noticed that despite having uptimed installed on more or less
all my Debian systems for more like 15 years or so. You're breaking my
tradition!!1!eleventy! ;-)

That one I noticed. But as the severity states, it's minor (but
admittedly annoying).

Actually for some reason, I thought the import of the uptimed database
is done by default if present. I probably misread that addition to the
package description.

Maybe there should be a transitional package from uptimed to tuptime
which actually calls that migration script. (For that it needs to be
packaged uncompressed and not under /usr/share/doc/. Will file bug
reports for these two things later today.)

P.S. to Ricardo: I saw your reply on #914954, will reply soonish.
