Quick field description (with example values from daffy1):
List of (internal) DNS aliases, or  if none
description: Login proxy for servers with authentication
One-line, human-readable description of what the server does.
List of links to additional documentation, or  if none
List of admins that are responsible for a server - typically the person

List of other servers that do the same job, and can take over if a
server breaks or (more boring) gets rebooted.  if there's only one
server for that job.
List of public URLs under which the server is reachable, or  if a
server doesn't provide public http or https services.
