Suggest a suitable name by which we can address the service (we don't
use the internal names like coridan because things can get moved
around), and I can set that up in a few minutes.

The documentation is the important bit as we don't deploy any service
without proper documentation any more (see pgFoundry for reasons why
not). We don't have a fixed format for that - what we need is a
description of what software is installed, how it's configured, and so
on. Enough that any of the sysadmin team can figure out in a couple of
minutes where the database is and how to access it, or what webserver
is being used and how to restart it etc. It should be enough that in a
pinch we can rebuild the server without lots of head-scratching.

We also need a list of key config files, which will be added to our
autobackup system to ensure we have copies and some change tracking.
