A few days ago I jotted down a few bulletpoints in my notes. The
purpose was to think about what subject headings might be found in an
administrator's reference.

Not terribly important or groundbreaking, but I'll post it for
completeness:

(1) Choosing the hardware and software platform
(2) Installation (ok the least of your worries)
(3) Configuration and security
(4) Maintenance: What specifically does the administrator need to do?
    How to do these tasks? Suggested maintenance schedule? What are
    the specific pitfalls and complexities? What to do about them?
(5) Backup and restore
(6) Relocating a repository
