I disagree. It would be nice to have a document like this, even if it has
pointers to already-existing HOWTOs. Certainly duplicating information is
bad, but tying things like this together for enterprise users is good. This is
always one of the big complaints of Linux documentation - that it's scattered
everywhere (even within the LDP itself). Perhaps this is something the
OSWG is working on?? Amir can contact them and see if that's a project
they'd be interested in. Unfortunately, I don't have any contact info for them.
