Re: Documenting the usage of /usr/lib/sasl2/slapd.conf (ITS#3164)

I note that, in general, the Admin Guide should refer the
reader to Cyrus SASL and Kerberos documentation as needed
instead of attempting to detail configuration aspects
particular to those systems.

For the alternative keytab file issue (which, BTW, isn't
needed by default), I will add the sentence:
        See your Kerberos and Cyrus SASL documentation for
        information regarding keytab location settings.

to the GSSAPI subsection just after the existing sentence
mentioning the keytab file.

The pwcheck_method stuff you suggest makes no sense to me.

The mapping stuff is covered in a separate subsection (as
noted in the intro to the SASL section).

Thanks, Kurt
