Hello SOGo users,

whenever I create a contact list in my addressbook (using autocompletion via a global LDAP backed addressbook) all the contacts I add to this list are also added to the addressbook.
This is somewhat unconvenient, because all those contacts already exist in the global LDAP (or maybe some other personal addressbook), so there's no need to have them duplicated in another book.
Even more annoying is the fact that sometimes those contacts are created twice, or a second one pops up if one already existed beforehand...
I would really prefer that adding an address to a list wouldn't create any individual contact at all, or at least to make it optional.

Is there any way to accomplish this or would that qualify as a bug/feature request?

Please don't mention "sogo-tool remove-doubles". I can't do this for every user and it might very well delete the one instance of a contact containing address, telephone, etc. in the most current version leaving an incomplete or out-of-date version behind. This is not an acceptable solution.

Thanks in advance
