Ok, it works nicely using Nautilus, but nothing shown in the Template
manager (I kind of expected that). I'll try to fix the Template manager
with it.

I'll test that later... first I'ld like to have them appearing in the
dialog. Through WebDAV it won't be possible to show thumbnails for all
files for obvious performances/load reasons... I'll have to add
placeholder pictures.

One possible case were we could need CMIS is to transport data like
thumbnails outside the actual template file.

I guess the current problem is that LibreOffice template management
classes are expected only one folder level. I'll see how to improve

Thanks for your quick action.
