there is no option to change the number of slosts depending on a calendar. What you can do:

- use a cron job to adjust the queue definition

- define a second queue with only the additional slots defined, which you can then control indeed by a calendar

While increasing the slot count is easy: what should happen with the running jobs when you lower the slots count:

- shall they continue to their end (i.e. like draining the queue)?

- shall they be suspended and continue when the calendar unsuspends the queue again?

- shall they be killed and rescheduled, so that they may start (from the beginning) during the day?
