Description

Mostly KeePassX replacement with KeePassXC is a dropin replacement. The usage is the same as before, the filename is the same.
So replace
KeePassX -> KeePassXC
~/.config/keepassx/keepassx2.ini -> ~/.config/keepassxc/keepassxc.ini

Migration from old file format is still supported via Import.

Don't know if it is too technical:

We may also want to document that there is a new kdbx file format, that is incompatible with the current one.
KeePassXC won't upgrade the file format automatically.

You need to update to this format by hand by switching Encryption Algorithm to "ChaCha20", and the Key Derivation Function to "Argon2":

Another thing I spotted (https://tails.boum.org/doc/encryption_and_privacy/manage_passwords/index.en.html):

"If you have a database named keepass.kdbx" should be keepassx.kdbx

so we have the functuallity to restart from Presistent/keepassx.kdbx out of the box, not Presistent/keepass.kdbx

I wrote 89a3f0886c to document how to update the cryptographic parameters. Please have a look.

The change from kdb to kdbx is already documented.

I cleaned up the grammar a bit in 89a3f0886c

Otherwise, looks good!
