Documents such as the one you mention are, apart from quite
good-looking, rather useless to the world at whole; papers that start
off with `apt-get ...', are useless as they supply information to only
a small portion of users, and what is worse, information that quickly
is outdated, or incorrect to start with. Furthermore, most people
simply "write-and-forget", meaning they never come back to update
their "howtos" for a next version of the respective software.

I tell people, "If you want howtos, buy Windows".

Gavin's suggestion to augment the Admin Guide with real-world
configuration examples can only be applauded. Examples of ACL,
grouping, etc. with descriptions would greatly enhance the value of
the OpenLDAP documentation.


P.S.: where is the book ? ;-)
