What does the NEWS file say about the migration?  I expect that it
uses the /usr/share as default values and uses /etc/logwatch as a
place to provide customizations.

Note that I don't know anything about logwatch.  For Debian I am using
logcheck with logcheck-data plus many local customizations.

Okay I looked.  Please read the file:


It describes the new scheme and describes a /etc/logwatch/conf
directory for local customizations.
