I do not know this ".." command (could you please show me how to use it
in a relative path?), but it sounds like a good start.

But it implies that I know in advance how many folders up the parent
directory is. I guess in most cases it will always be the same, but it
would be even better if it could be applied generically.

As I said, ideally, I would like to get the project directory from a
script located in a subfolder.
