	That's totally true for Brazilian Portuguese.

	That's great! So, I would like to bring back my original question,
which should be the "Right Way (tm)" to send the translation to be added
to the official infrastructure?

	I would like to help with that, we are reviewing some Debian
Foundational Documents (Maint Guide, Policy, Security Guide) and if it is
possible I would like to minimize translators work and "debian-doc
commiters" work.

	Kind regards,
