I'm really interested in how to put documentation on the ldap server.
Now I have a number of chapters each one representing a logical part of the
server documentation (ldap, mail, samba) etc and custom scripts to get the
configuration files updated etc etc..
Now I would also like to put images for the most common configurations to do
(with the windows clients), how could I do that with ldap?

I already use ldap for the shared address book and for authentication of
users, so I already know how to work with it..

Puppet is really interesting, I will give it a try!
I tried the "disable gain focus" plugin and I don't get those sort of errors
anymore, now it's confortable to edit files over sshfs...
