When requireComputerRecord is true, the calendar server will look for a
/Computers record matching its hostname in the directory and extract keys
from that that it uses to create a ServicesLocator value. Then, when it
searches for users, it will only match users that have that ServicesLocator
value set. i.e. only those users for whom calendaring has been enabled in
the appropriate fashion will be provisioned on the server.
If requireComputerRecord is false, then the server will provision all users
found via a directory search, irrespective of the ServicesLocator value. So
if you have a directory that does not support the new schema, you can use
the server with requireComputerRecord off.
However, iCal always requires ServicesLocator and the new schema to detect
accounts and calendar users enabled for the server. So you do still need
the new schema for iCal.

David Reid has recently added ical-schema.txt into the doc directory in
SVN. That documents the new schema we are using. Let us know if you need
