It's not possible to do the work only over the web frontend. I can't see 
any possibility to add a directory over the web UI. Today I recognize 
that the directories for the Apache OpenOffice project are inside 
Pootle, but the po files are missing. We can add the po files manualy, 
but this is realy stupid work. There are so many po files, you will 
going crazy by uploading all by hand.

So I realy prefer to do this per command line. I will talk this night 
with Galvin, if he has time, to find out how to do this. We comming 
closer to our goal, but we are not there atm.

That's a good Idea. If we findout how exactly the command line import 
and export works, we can automate all. we can save a load of time with this.
