Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese are different languages per se
(caution: we are not dealing with different dialects here).

are the way to go.

BTW, in the Localization arena (i18n-related projects) we got a master
list, fedora-trans-list at redhat.com, for discussing overall
translation issues in English, and also localized lists, like fedora-
trans-pt_BR at redhat.com (for Brazilian Portuguese) for local matters.

More details at: http://fedora.redhat.com/projects/translations/

It has been working well and I do recommend this approach for the users

Thanks for listening,
David Barzilay
