     For those of you interested in LDAP, I've made some small changes 
to the LDAP pages in the wiki:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LDAPClientAuthentication (Client side)
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenLDAPServer           (Server side)

     I'm trying not to step on any toes; we're lucky to have the hard 
work someone put into these pages, but they need more love.

     What I'd like to do is get more detail on a client that uses 
host_attr checking.  I used to have it here, back when my schema was 
fouled and things weren't done so cleanly, but I've had trouble 
recreating that...and the howtos don't work quite the same on Feisty.

     Can someone send me that part, or post it there please?
