In the past, was more problematic that today, it's true.

As in Spanish, somethings are different, but I agree that is
understandable. Using some other projects, like Mozilla, we have
distinction between both languages with proper space for both, or
better, i see only brazilians in brazilian space; or in Debian, that
we have one space since years, that was "occupied" with brazilian way
and today we are creating the proper space for pt-BR.

I think that do a unique space is a good idea and, if we see problems,
we do other.

When we read what was wrote in other variant is easy understand almost
all. The problem is more when talk, that isn't the case of our tool.

Albino, do you can be the moderator of pt forum? Maybe more one
portuguese volunteer?
