True enough, but also OpenLDAP website doesn't look like a shining
example of modern web design.  Not that I know much of how to improve

Yesno.  HOWTOs, certainly.  Not that I've looked much at the site myself.
Mostly I've seen others talk about it.

OTOH, much of it seems more or less copied from manpages, the Admin
Guide etc.  Seems a losing game to proofreed and try to maintain a
separate copy of those, in a permanent state of catch-up.
