[Kolab-devel] Modifying the LDAP user representation for a distributed Kolab server system?

The current Kolab2/OpenPKG server is usually installed as a complete
system on a single server. Some setups use a master/slave installation
where all machines are also complete Kolab servers.

In principle it is possible to distribute the system to a larger
degree and split postfix/IMAP/webmail to different hosts. We already
encourage such setups for the webmail. There are also people splitting
the free/busy system to another server:

I'd like to know if people feel it makes sense to allow for such
splitted Kolab server setups. As far as I can see this would require
additional settings comparable to "kolabHomeserver" in the LDAP schema
for a Kolab user. There is already "kolabHomeMTA" in the schema but it
is currently unused.

Would it make sense to add additional entries such as
"kolabImapServer", "kolabFreeBusyServer" etc. in the Kolab user
