Hello Björn,
We are working on preparing and publishing the requested schema files soon. As this is related to adprep tool, it’s a different process. For implementation testing, please leverage the files from installation media for the time being. 
I can let you as soon as the change is posted on GitHub. Meanwhile, feel free to sign-in and watch the repository on Github.

the reason I ask for this is that there are Samba AD setups out there which have imported AD databases from old Windows 2000 or 2003 domains and currently we are not able to make a schema update on those setups because we lack the public information for the exact schema information.
All the old .ldf files can be found on the adprep directories of the Windows Server 2008 installation media but as far as I know we are not allowed to use them safely as long as they are not being officially published. That's the background of my request to publish them.
