I like it and checked it out in the past, but I cannot rent software, I
can only buy. And nightly builds in the CE aren't my cup of tea.

Not that I know of, but you can configure Nextcloud to use any
attribute, so we created our own attribute in our schema for nextcloud:

As far as I understood, it also restricts managing your own attributes,

Sure, but I prefer tested solutions. But if I don't find anything
suitable, maybe we'll really do a simple web interface...

I got another hint off list, GOsa was forked into Fusion Directory. Will
check this out as well.

Thanks, this shows me at least that I didn't miss anything obvious.
