In a recent blog entry
I discussed how LDAP gets misused in some applications, using sendmail as
example. Gavin Henry commented that some of that material ought to go in
FAQ-o-Matic. And I replied with the usual "the FAQ-o-Matic is open for
Too true. The e-mail post in question is in my reply to Howards post. It
was so detailed and clearly explained, that is must go in the main docs
I think we could really use someone to volunteer to be a documentation

merging useful mailing list posts into the FAQ-o-Matic.
I've pulled in all the Performance/Tuning stuff for the tuning sdf, just
need to make it coherent.
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
Part of that task may include consolidating information from several FAQ

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
all to benefit.
Also, if you've got ideas for additional content or areas that you feel
that you know a lot about, then why not let everyone know and we can
allocate a topic etc. and start a "who's got what" on the FAQ-O-Matic.
