Marco, good that you bring this question up once again. :)
Last time I bring this question up and is the desire of
the Brazilian Portuguese Team to share the resources with European
Portuguese Team. I proposed a full split of www and other structures
a couple of months ago and by request we wait some time.
A lot of parts of Debian already use pt and pt_BR, our
intention is to complete this split to provide our users a better
experience. Miguel (from DebianPT) already agree with me on that.
Once again, there are no "hidden agenda" or secret historical
itens here, just translators trying to get a better organization. A
good idea, would be create a debian-l10n-brazilian and move our
efforts to there, leaving debian-l10n-portuguese to European Portuguese

My advice is to bring back the original discussion and prepare
a plan together with Brazilian Portuguese team to re-sctruture what is
our needs, probably copy the www directory and related stuff. With that
we can arrange the necessary space and the necessary changes for both
teams. I would be happy to help with that, but we still need i18n
coordinators approval and some input from www team.
BTW, I don't see a need to split debian-users-portuguese and
