Is this saying "twiki-ldapcontrib has been installed (in the dpkg
sense) but the LdapContrib topic data has not been imported"?

Is "attachments" the standard term here?

Instead of being tentative, be polite:
Please follow the instructions in /usr/share/doc/twiki/README.Debian.gz
to install TWiki's "default Topic Set", and then run
(I'm assuming "Topic Set" with its odd capitalisation is standard).
Note the -.gz; and in fact it might be simpler to point directly at

If it means installation in the install-from-tarballs sense this

JBR with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
