Well, I got permission from my company to publish my work on Kolab, and
this encompasses (of course) my posixGroup extension (called
companionGroup), and also some other nice things like an user archiver
(to disable users, but keep them stored with the possibility to
re-enable them). These extension revolve around some bash, two own ldap
schemata and a 'hacked' user.php.

I will bring these extensions to the kolab wiki in the next few days. I
will give notice then.

Best regards, Christian
