I don't know why documentation stuff gets removed from the website anyway.  
Even if the docs are bad, it's better than to have none at all.  That's why 
I'd propose an official documentation wiki, but that's another thread.  
Concerning the LDAP HOWTO and docs, the problem I had with all of them was 
that there were no docs around which told me for example how to organize my 
tree, or which are the most commonly used objectClasses.  You know, all 
guides explain to you how to set up the software, all tell you that there is 
a tree and stuff, but none tells you how you should use it.
