As you may guess, I'm a native Portuguese speaker. The differences
between the original Portuguese (from Portugal) and Brazilian
Portuguese may be very subtle, which looks like to be the case here.

I've analyzed the diff[1] between `pt.po` and `pt_BR.po` and, although
there are lines that really should be translated to make sense for
Brazilian users, there are some which I'm not sure if they are
properly translated. I never really did a Portuguese -> Brazilian
Portuguese translation, so I may be biased to think that some
sentences should (or shouldn't) be changed.



Were this translation reviewed by debian-l10n-portuguese@l.d.o (I do
not follow that list)? I'll not suggest any changes here, as I do not
know how the translation team works. If they reviewed it indeed, we
can certainly include this file for the next release.
