[babel-dev] add a new project and handle its property files


I've got a couple of questions. Please don't be discouraged. I
appreciate any response to these points.

1) How can I add another RCP-project to a local Babel installation? I
just got a local Babel LAMP installation working and found the
map_files.php to be responsible for handling projects. The point is
that this site only lists projects that are already included in the
database. I'm missing something like an add button to insert my own
project as well. Sure, I could access the db directly but I'm quite
sure this isn't an appropriate way. Additionally, the db and its
tables isn't documented so far (at least I didn't find anything yet)
so it's a kind of try 'n error to insert something into here without
knowing what's actually required / forbidden ...

2) After adding a new project the local installation needs to get the
property files, which contain the English strings to be translated.
There are two major ways to import them either by sending a mail with
all properties attached (in a certain dir structure) to be inserted
manually (haven't found any how to's for that, too) or to specify map
files that point to a repository. The second approach seems to be the
one to chose. However, letting babel pull information out of a remote
repository is one thing. Uploading data via API is another. Does such
an API exist were I could push the property files myself? This way
seems a bit more resource saving to me.

3) The runtime translation editor is a piece of software that really
earns my respect. Not just because of its techniques (though they look
interesting) but because of its concept. Translating an application
_inside_ the application itself is just a wonderful idea. So can you
make any statements about how this plugin integrates with the Babel
server so far (esp. uploading)?

4) Babel starts in a staging mode. Where can I configure Babel to be
in mode x, y?

5) Probably obsolete: Where can I configuring Babel to provide whether
an update site or a zip (or both)?
