No - not really. We would have done so if we had had the resources, I
guess. So if you feel like translating it: go ahead. Of course it
might be good if you also spread it among the Portugese news-sources
as we hardly know them and the others will be able to work with the
present release. 

So just translate it and add a little note like "translated for your
convenience by Frederico S. Muñoz" and distribute it. And thanks for
your effort!

Yes, I agree. If you get any reaction, we'd definitely not be upset
about being kept up-to-date, too. *g*

Sorry about that. It is just that translating the (extremely minimal)
page is just really low on our list of priorities. We'd rather get
things started and have a REAL page that can be translated then.
