Could you explain what's wrong with the migration ? The file is in
/etc/default, so it's marked as CONFFILES, and as such, if you changed
it, dpkg will do a prompt. In my case, it did:

Setting up minissdpd (1.5.20161216-2~bpo9+1) ...
Installing new version of config file /etc/default/minissdpd ...
Installing new version of config file /etc/init.d/minissdpd ...

I don't see any trouble here...

If you do, please explain.

As much as I understand, you're supposed to just configure one interface
or IP pool, and miniupnpd will listen on all IPs on that device / pool.

/usr/sbin/minissdpd --help explains this.

If you just enter an interface name, like let's say eth0, then it will
listen on that. If you enter, then it will listen on
everything, no mater what. I tried putting without the trailing
/0, and it looks like also working.

Contributions, suggestions, ideas are more than welcome for improving
the package.
