howto. I think a great howto would be one that expands on this: http://
mattfleming.com/node/190 except going into much more detail outlining every
step necessary for it to work.
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is outdated, or incorrect to start with.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".
Generally, all "HOWTO"s are to be despised and regarded as dog food (but
there's quite tasty dog food out there).
I used to write my few own guides, but always stressed that these were
not HOWTOs, simply "what works for me". I stressed that I hated the word
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 still have to get around to "what works for me" for writing up for
Gavin delta-syncrepl chaining and ppolicy (for our site, the latter
greatest thing since sliced gnats ;) )
