Hi,

I'm assuming you're using the Unix command line to do this. All you
need to do is move the documents that are already in the collection
out of the import directory, put the _new_ documents into your import
directory and run:

import.pl -keepold [collection_name]

Then build the collection using the normal:

buildcol.pl [collection_name]

Finally move the index directory out of the way and rename the
building directory to import like so:

mv index index.old
mv building index

And your collection should contain the new documents but should not
have to reimport all documents. While you're building a collection
this way, make sure you don't remove the archives directory from the
collection directory, otherwise you'll have to do a full rebuild with
all files.
