We do ship those as "examples". A source install gives you /etc/ipsec.d/examples/
and a fedora install gives those examples in /usr/share/doc/openswan-2*/*

But yes, we're still looking at migrating a lot of documentation and examples into
the redmine based wiki to replace www.openswan.org. If there are volunteers who
want to help with that, let me know. documentation is hard to find people for. Once
they know too much, they tend to drop the documentation part (guilty as charged)
