I sent this to the list instead, because it probably has general use.

Well, it holds a couple things right now. 

ou=ArchPeople,dc=gnuarch,dc=org just holds people, email addresses, their
location, their gpg key id. It'll also hold userid and usserpass stuff
once the site is going.

There is also ou=ArchArchives,dc=gnuarch,dc=org. In there, you'll find
every archive that I know about. It lists the archive, the primary site,
mirror site(s) and what key(s) its signed with. Each archive can have
descriptions for categories, branches and versions attached.

In ou=ArchProjects,dc=gnuarch,dc=org, I will hold project information --
for example, what fully qualified version in which arch archive holds the
website, which will be hosted at (projectname)
