I just thought of this. We could also distribute a common template file as part of FreeIPMI and install it in the docs dir? I guess my semi- argument against this is the fact that we've (practically) already distributed a template file with the bmc-config.conf(5) manpage. So would there be a need?
What are people's thoughts?
