All other ous are in plural form, only the ou=group looks misspelled...

Anyway, GOsa has its own way of structuring LDAP (that's why GOsa in Skolelinux requires an LDAP-migration tool that is customized for the old lwat-based LDAP-DIT. My suggestion is to handle LDAP-stuff like GOsa proposes it. LDAP DIT has to be changed for GOsa anyway (part of the discussion in Zweibrücken), thus I recommend using the standard GOsa way (where the department ous are optional and should not be configured with standard Skolelinux, also part of the discussion in the Distro). dc=<base-dn> | |--ou=<department-1> | | | |--ou=people | | | |--ou=groups | | | `--ou=systems | |--ou=<department-2> | | | |--ou=people | | | |--ou=groups | | | `--ou=systems |--ou=<department-3> | | | |--ou=people | | | |--ou=groups | | | `--ou=systems | |--ou=people | |--ou=groups | `--ou=systems One suggestion also was to disable the department-ous in GOsa for standard Skolelinux distribution and document how to re-enable it in case you want to setup a bigger site than a normal school. Andi proposed to setup ,,deparment-ous'' for students and teachers already as a default Skolelinux setup (as currently provided in Debian Edu). I also like this idea, but maybe for non-LDAP-gurus this might already be too much. However, GOsa has a fine way of presenting the ou-structure in the GUI... Sorry for running a little off-topic...
