Noted for the upstream part.eeks, so this is also an important bug, maybe even serious, but i'm too lazy to also file this one as...
Fixed in 0.0.4-1.

Fixed in 0.0.4-1.

Still pending. Tests follow over the weekend.

And they appear even later on campus, at least here in Kiel.
And it is, of course, localtime. And: cron.d files are editable.everything is editable. We *need* sensible default. (This seems to be one.)
We have sensible defaults now, I think.

It would load the desktop env that x-session-manager points at.

The desktop-autoloader now come in disabled state by default. It needs to be enabled in /etc/defaults/desktop-autoloader.
Thanks for thinking about this,well, you are welcome, but I also expect more thoughts before suggesting enabling some new feature by default...
