Yep. This is something we have to add, we worked on it last year, but 
it's not finished yet.

Note that we currently support (partially) collective attributes and 
access control, which are part of the Administrative Model the Subschema 
is associated with. The schema is still global at this point.

No, not yet. This is something we must implement, as for NameForms and

I hope I have clarified those points.

Yep. We have already made the SchemaManager an insolated module so that 
it will be possible to have many instance of it in the server, thus 
allowing the use of SubschmaSubentries

Right : e have only one schema atm, and it's for the whole DIT.

Atm, I do think we will get a 2.0 out before being able to have 
subschema added, but be sure that one of the next minor iteration (2.1 
or 2.2) will have such a feature.

Hope it helps.
