13 Templates (for the selfcare interface and the different provisioning daemons):

A mechanism must be created, which copies the templates to the different servers, so that the different provisioning daemons have access to the templates.

This means, the document Backup (OpenLDAP) needs to be updated.

The language is comes from the preferredLanguage attribute.

This task is closely related to task no. 6 from above.
