Did you miss our Admin Guide, listed on the front page of the main site?

If so, do you think it is named correctly, positioned correctly? Have you
read it and think it wasn't clear?

What would *you* like to see in our guide/docs?

We (OpenLDAP team) are working on a new guide for 2.4, which lists all
these features, of what I call "Advanced OpenLDAP", which isn't really,
but that title will grab users/admins eyes and hopefully cover what you

Any thoughts from all welcomed.
