Thanks Andreas for creating openldap-dit.  For the last couple of days I've
been testing it, and after a few updates was able to get it to work on
Lucid.  As you mentioned there are a lot of ways to create a directory tree,
and everyone does it differently.  I created a branch to attempt to
modularize the  openldap-dit-setup.sh script based on which services an
admin would like.  It's probably pretty crude, but I was able to apply all
the different schemas, and tested the sudo items.

Mathias I created a blueprint here:
I agree that another UDS discussion would be great :-).

Thanks again.

Party On,
