Clarify the term "project root directory"

The documentation at
should be run from "the root directory of your Django project" or "the root directory of your Django app".
As the Django 1.4 directory structure creates mysite/ and mysite/mysite/, it is unclear, what the project's root directory is. Running django-admin makemessages/compilemessages within mysite/ makes the the Django translation system ignore my translation file. Running the commands in mysite/mysite/ instead does work as expected.
It should be explicitly stated in the tutorial, that mysite/mysite/ is the project's root directory.
