Hi Michael,

I'm the Maintainer of Portuguese language (and altlinux.com.br), my
Partner (Dlnunes@) is the maintainer of Spanish language.

The problem is in integration of developer brazilian (and spanish) in
sisyphus, for this the multi-language is necessary ;)

My suggestion of English by language mother in communication of Latin
American developer with All developers. (Brazilians, russians,
ukrainian, etc..)

Several developers brazilian had interest in collaborating in the
development of ALT Linux
