I am working on ticket #4302 and am building a protoptype to verify if
the current design  will work an what is missing.
Now the question comes up, how will this be managed and what happens
with eg ipa-replica-manage ? If the topology plugin is deployed and
configured it will control all replication related tasks via
modifcations of the entries in the shared tree, direct modofications of
replication agreements will be rejected. This makes several subcommands
of ipa-replica-manage unusable, like connect/disconnect/... .
So should the functionality of ipa-replica-manage be changed to use the
shared tree or should there be a new command like ipa-topology-manage.
I would prefere a new command, so ipa-replica-manage is there if the
topology plugin is disabled, also there shoul be some new subcommands
like topology-verify, topology-view ...
Let me know what you think,
