The quickstart guide on the OpenLDAP home page only references using slapd.conf.
 It has no references to the new config backend.  Since slapd.conf is
deprecated, it would be good to have a quickstart guide that reflected this.

It was getting on my nerves and I had to spend a lot of time
to clear up the situation. Being a beginner in both areas
Debian Distribution and OpenLDAP-Server I entered the docs
via Quick Start and immediately stuck headover in the mud
of outdated and inconsistent docs / references..

Please add at least a note about the new configuration
method and a link to the explaining wiki page
http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/slapdconf2.html

in Quick-Start:
http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/quickstart.html

As you link to http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/slapdconfig.html
from there in section 8 about Configuration you should
also add a note and link there or even better add an own section
about the dynamic configuration method in Quick-Start.

Thanks in advance and cheers

Gabriele
