I would like to propose a blueprint for a base directory setup tool based on
the OpenLDAP-DIT project: https://launchpad.net/openldap-dit.  The current
branch adds schemas and objects for DNS, DHCP, etc and these may be more
work than I have time for.

As many have noted there is a need for a tool/process to get a base
directory created for those users who don't know a lot about LDAP.  As a
starting place using a simpler version of the openldap-dit-setup.sh script
that just creates the base DC, OUs, admin user, etc is a reasonable goal for

I know directory services are not a hugely high priority for the full time
members of the Server Team, but are of great interest to many of the same
members.  I should have time this cycle to work on such a blueprint to
hopefully have an easier way to get starting using OpenLDAP on Ubuntu

Please let me know your ideas and if this is a worth while project for a
community member.

Party On,
