Thanks Wobo,

Maât has received a similar message from Otto, I received a similar
one from Creto. Maat replied he'd be glad to help and asked Otto for
permission to forward Otto's message to council and board.

I didn't hear or see he received that permission, yet.

- From the beginning Mageia has always been willing to host the forums
of local Mageia communities, so I guess everybody would be happy to
welcome the Brazilian forums :)
