Public bug reported:

It looks like the new openldap installation has it's default
configuration so bare-bone that is COMPLETELY UNUSABLE out-of-the-box.

The default backend dbd aren't even loaded, no schemas beyond core, no

Now, add to that the fact that cn=config is a real pain in the ass to
use, the end result is that the usability of the package has been
greatly reduced (understatement of the year)

Please, allow the users to choose through debconf is they do want a
barebone configuration, or something that actually works after

Please keep in mind openldap is not only used by system administrators
(whom, yes you'd expect would need to learn how to mess around with
cn=config), but also by others, like developers for example, who need a
work LDAP server, without losing hours getting it up and running.
