that and also because we would need to introduce new binary packages for
this new translation which is a no-go at this stage of the buster maintenance

I agree.

And btw, I'm also responsible / to blame for the decision to ship a
debian-edu-pt-pt package in bullseye and not a debian-edu-pt package, for
two reasons:
- while there is some ambiguity whether packages for Portuguese from Portugal 
  should be called pt-pt or pt, there is no precedence (and tool support)
  for having pt packages for "African Portuguese" and pt-pt for Portuguese
  from Portugal, so I'm not fully convinced this is the right way forward.
  (It might be.)
- because of this and because we are very late at the bullseye release
  cycle I don't want to introduce this at this very late state. We can
  already consider us lucky if we manage to get new debian-edu-doc-pt-pt
  packages added to bullseye at this time!

I'm sorry that your work on debian-edu-doc-pt will not be included in the
bullseye release. But: after the release is before the release and bookworm
will be much better thabn bullseye anyway!

So, thanks for your great work and please keep it up!

Obrigado! :)
