FWIW (I've completely gone over to 2.3.4 on my test rig, it's dead
stable on RHAS3 - whatever you do to it - though goodness knows 2.2.17
is turning up trumps in production too).


- Converted all the OL 2.3.4 man pages to html (man2html);
- put them on my test rig's web site;
- indexed them all with swish-e, so that I can do word searches on them

Obviously I have (and use) the 2.3.4 admin guide too.

Still can't find Quanah's back-config anywhere ...
