Hi Matthias.
There are any doc about extending schemas and third party schemas?

In the Wiki the "Samba4/Schema extensions" link go to nothing.
The answer in the FAQ to this question isn't clear at all,


Note: I'm very interested in migrate the GOsa schemas to LDB to give
to GOsa/Fusiondirectory Samba4 support.
