Currently we cannot handle nested DLs on the server. (We use DLs also for 

With Kolab3 the handling of users and groups shall be redesigned to offer this 

The historical reason for this limitation is the tradidional simple unix model 
for users and groups which explicitly disallows nested groups and which has 
two seperate namespaces for users and group.

For Kolab3 I think that the Windows approach of a single namespace and 
arbitrary nesting is more flexible and adds also usability.
