OK. fine. But what is this Site listbox good for? I see no sense
flipping from / to /sites/default and nothing happening.

Also, what is the sense of Offline and Online Projects?

I have created a new project, imported a .zip file from a 5.0 site,
and now I see all these files in every project. When I switch between Offline,
Online, MyProject, everytime the system takes a deep breath and lists
all my imported files (View Files for Project).

Can anyone explain, why in the View of files for Project
in Offline and Online a flag and a lock ist applied to the files, while in
MyProject and kuku (an older project I created some time ago)
these locks and flags are not shown?

Are Offline and Online "special" projects? (the names suggest this :-).

Excuse my ignorant questions but I'm trying to understand all this.
