yes, after checking out the "core" repository via git

  git clone git://

just edit the file Labels.xcu mentioned above to add your labels, then
commit your change

  git commit -a -m "add labels for my company"

then create a patch file

  git format-patch HEAD~

and you should get some 0001-*.patch file inside "core"; simply write a
mail to the lo-dev list (i.e. this mailing list) with subject "[PATCH]
add labels for my company", attach the patch file and then somebody will
review it.

i don't think it's necessary for you to actually build LO just to add
the labels, a patch that isn't build-tested is good enough.
