We can create something like a wiki, using the OpenLDAP documentation and "translate" this things to Howto´s.
I've often thought about this, as Samba do similar at: http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Main_Page as do other major OSS projects.
Here are the issues with your appreciated suggestions:
I'm also tired of this yet-another-wiki-will-improve-documentation approach. Why? Because Wikis have to be filled with content by skilled people who have some spare time left. If they are able and willing to do the work (like fortunately Gavin does) they sure are able to give input without the need for a particular media. There are so many Wikis out there without any real content...
I agree. And to provide different media formats for export is hard. We would also need a website, database, upgrades, maintenance etc. etc.
BTW: "Customers" want to have "official" looking docs => IMO the Admin Guide is the most suitable media to work with.
Again, agreed. From SDF we can provide multi-html, single-html and PDF.
