That's true. All of the manpages should be updated for cn=config. In that
respect this ITS can be combined with ITS#7288.

However, we need to decide on how the new information will be presented, to
avoid any unnecessary duplication. It's already quite redundant to maintain
both the cn=config and slapd.conf chapters of the Admin Guide.

Also, the overall issue is an extremely low priority, since all of the schema
definitions can simply be read out of the cn=schema,cn=config entry. The
slapd-config(5) manpage and Admin Guide already note that all of the schema
are present here, so anyone looking for this information should already know
to look there.
