I am not foreseeing anything in the core, but we can move Automember
under configuration is we want to.

Well this is not related to just the one server, but the whole set of
servers. Maybe the plural "IPA Servers" ?

Just a FYI: I do not think views and trust should be in the same place.
Views will also be available for regular IPA server with no trusts, the
2 are not strictly related. Views IMO really belong here with other
directory configuration items.

Isn't this strictly related to OTP ? I would put it in the same place.

Why the minimum is 768 ?

Maybe we can drop Documentation from the top level ? Or make it really
small by using a "?" as the menu symbol ?  :)

Maybe we should stop using full names but instead get a set of icons
that represent each item and have the name only as a tooltip ?

This way the first level menu bar sizing would be consistent regardless
of the language.

Yeah maybe we should just avoid names here and use icons+tooltips/hover
instead.
