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are useless as they supply information to only a small portion of users, and what is worse, information that quickly is outdated, or incorrect to start with.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.

I think our Appendices will be the biggest part ;-)
