In a recent blog entry
I discussed how LDAP gets misused in some applications, using sendmail as an
example. Gavin Henry commented that some of that material ought to go in the
FAQ-o-Matic. And I replied with the usual "the FAQ-o-Matic is open for anyone
I think we could really use someone to volunteer to be a documentation lead,
because just relying on random members of the community to contribute is just
too, well, random.
One of the things such a doc person might do is take responsibility for
merging useful mailing list posts into the FAQ-o-Matic.
Another task that would be a big help would be to sift thru the current
entries in the FAQ and identify articles that can move into the Admin Guide.
Part of that task may include consolidating information from several FAQ
items into a single coherent piece of text.
If you've been looking for a way to get more involved in the OpenLDAP
community, this would be a great way to start. You don't have to be a
programmer, and you'll learn a lot on the way. Plus you'll get that warm
fuzzy feeling from knowing you've helped to improve the OpenLDAP package for
all to benefit.
