One more question before I start uploading: how do I reconcile the  
different .po files used in the OOo l10n project and the Rosetta  
project? You are probably aware that the mass of translatable strings  
are "sliced up" differently in the two frameworks -- we have 230  
smallish .po files in 36 subdirectories, instead of Rosetta's 11 huge  
templates -- so what exactly is the procedure for matching up the  
two? Can I just upload the files we have directly and let Rosetta  
work it out? Or do I need a script from somewhere to convert one into  
the other before proceeding?

Thanks in advance for the help.
