I just saw the page listed at for Fedora:

Here are the problems to solve:

* The logo used is not the correct Fedora logo.  (Notice the incorrect
  bubble shape and the "f" curves are too long.)

* The site to which that page points no longer exists.

There is no need to create a subdomain at that site, as far as I can
tell.  Instead, I would recommend asking the site owners to simply
substitute a link to the wiki /pt as you said.  I would also recommend
using the following text, which comes from the official wiki:

The Fedora Project is a global partnership of free software community
members. The Fedora Project is sponsored by Red Hat, which invests in
our infrastructure and resources to encourage collaboration and
incubate innovative new technologies. Some of these technologies may
later be integrated into Red Hat products. They are developed in
Fedora and produced under a free and open source license from
inception, so other free software communities and projects are free to
study, adopt, and modify them.

The Portuguese community in Fedora actively maintains pages on our
collaborative wiki.  The community includes Ambassadors, translators,
marketeers, and other contributors to the Project.  Visit the link
above to get connected with other Fedora community members and find
out how you can help advance free software.
