Should we merge the TLS cert generation seciton of the FAQ into
Sounds good to me.
That really falls outside the purpose of the OpenLDAP Admin Guide, i.e., a
guide to administering *OpenLDAP* software. We can reference the FAQ article,
or a separately packaged HOWTO document, but IMO it does not belong in the
Guide itself. Just as we talk about how Kerberos or SASL may be used, but don't
discuss how to initialize and populate a KDC or SASL authentication DB.
At some point we'll have our own certificate-generating overlay, in which case
it will be an actual piece of OpenLDAP software, and then it will be a
legitimate topic for the Guide. I.e., I do feel that the lack of integral X.509
support is something we need to address, and that the overall topic properly
belongs under the OpenLDAP umbrella since it is a core element of the X.500
spec. We just aren't there yet.
