No, that email showed up later and pt was a clone of pt-pt at that time.
Don't know the current state, though.

Both are European Portuguese, one with recent orthography (pt-pt) the 
other one (pt) with ancient one.

From a Debian package naming convention standpoint, it would make no 
sense to ship both debian-edu-doc-pt-pt and debian-edu-doc-pt, because 
both pt and pt-pt are considered the same (European Portuguese). As far 
as I can tell, some maintainers choose pt, others pt-pt for whatever 

According to José, the »difference between pt and pt-PT is not big«.
So I'm just wondering if two versions would make sense.

Anyway: if the translation using ancient orthography is considered 
to be necessary, question is how to ship it.
