If not already, there will be a new version which has a tab for editing posix group
In general, is it possible to modify
Yes. This is already in updates testing -

added in Alpha 3.

The fastest way to modify LDAP is CLI (ldapmodify) ;-).
To exent the GUI for more attributes is possible but less documented.
is not very extensible in this way. If you are a java
programmer, you could add additional fields/tabs for the schema you are
interested in. For example, the recently added support for Posix Groups.

You can add easy a ACI on that OU Node with the console:
Set access permissions
First you add a user who should get the permissions for manage the users, for example:
Choose the container witch contains the users to manage and add there the ACI, for
(targetattr = "userPassword")
acl "Permissions to manage user passwords";
(userdn = "ldap:///uid=uhd,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com")
The DSGW has a
user self service password change page -

There is also a Fedora CA project.
