Same here. There's a plethora of groupware servers to chose from, but a 
simple remote file resource is not available anymore. It might be that 
it was removed because it's not possible to lock a remote file and that 
it's impossible to get notified about changes. Also after every small 
change the whole file had to be uploaded. I remember several 
discussions about the problems with the remote file resource and I'm 
pretty sure that it was removed because of those problems. Some other 
thing that I seem to remember is that due to some very reasonable 
design decisions it was no longer possible to support the remote file 

IOW, the remote file resource was removed and most likely it will not 
come back. (OTOH, it shouldn't be too hard to implement a remote file 
resource for Akonadi.)
