  • 'how to use gconf' documentation? -> sabayon helps

  • administrator guide -> not complete, covers old material

  • gconf-ldap? Something like profile management.
  • evo-ldap
  • Lack of GUI for lockdown. (Part of sabayon?) vuntz is working on pessulus: http://cvs.gnome.org/viewcvs/pessulus/

  • Menu editor for sysadmins http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-4-Manual/desktop-guide/

  • Unixy stuff - /etc/motd, talk, console messages.
