I was talking about the NEED for such a document, not
talking about who authored / would author it.
My point (perhaps unclear) was that openldap should have such
a document, or at least not 'dis those who try..
There's another good source of documentation in the tests/script
with all the major features being setup in tests repository.
Don't minimize doc. Easy docs means more successful setup, more
visibility, more persons involved and more developers.
The Zytrax guys are clearly just out to make a buck, lifting
the OpenLDAP Admin Guide content and putting a thin layer of
"personal experience" around it. They're not contributing back
to the OpenLDAP community; they're not participating in the
community at all, and the info they're distributing is (as
noted) already outdated.
Such a openldap guide might least serve a purpose, more for
supposed to the old salts, in that it could reduce chatter
regards to getting
a server compiled/running/loaded etc., in the first place,

If you really believe that helping a 3rd party keep their
obsolete plagiarism of the OpenLDAP Project's work up to date
is a good idea, "optimist" is not the word I'd use for you.
My reference to being an optimist was thinking that the
openldap project might by itself create such a guide. Being an
open source project i'm sure there is plenty of other work
needing to be done, besides creating such a guide.
Admin guide is using sdf at this time. All documents are included in
the source tarball. Have a look.
I am happy enough to have a go at such a guide, but a poet i
am not. What is the preferred document format ?
