great, I committed it.

There was a minor error in it which I fixed:
nsgmls:release-notes.pt_BR.sgml:80:13:E: element "PRN" undefined

Not similar to d-i manual, it's much easier! You don't need a couple of
scripts, it uses two ordinary Makefiles.

Just install debiandoc-sgml, texlive (basic packages, I don't know now
what is required in detail) and call make architecture=i386.

All available architectures are computed in Makefile:
ARCHES="alpha amd64 arm hppa i386 ia64 m68k mips mipsel powerpc sparc s390"

Now call in pt_BR/
 for i in $ARCHES; do make architecture=$i; done
to test all.

You can also restrict yourself to HTML (has no additional package
requirements as PS, PDF):

make architecture=hppa html

You could also switch to PO format. See e.g. ../Readme and the Japanese
CVS log for details.

It is. Please make it a little bit more formal, write a new mail and
explain why you want to access. Since we all know you well I will
confirm this and Joey (or someone else) will grant you access.
