>> Typical topics might be:
>> Which OpenLDAP version to use
>> How to configure it best for Samba
>> How to configure BDB
>> DSE/DIT architecture
>> SSL/TLS configuration
>> ACL design
>> Security
>> Sources of information on the web, FAQs.
>> We'll see if we're welcome there.


> Whitch list is it?
