    • databases
    • web content in /var/www
    • svn repo in /var/svn
    • /home
    • /etc (etckeeper bzr repo?)
  • Get DNS services installed? (Not sure if I'm going to bother with this)
  • Get automatic user registrations working
    • Create user in Kerberos
    • Create user in LDAP
    • Create home directory
    • Create email account
    • Create wiki user
