Subject Res: Re: How to handle the native language lists?

We have some strong diferences between both languages, and in Brazil there is some cool jokes
about the names used on old OpenOffice (and StarOffice) menus.

This was btw the first barrier we've had for a massive adoption of the tool here, and it just
grow up when the first pt-br version was launched.

Best,

Jomar

I think br_pt and br_pt are the same.

I don't know, and pt-BR users and pt users may not know, because we
don't know US English, UK English, Swiss German and standard German.

I hope you are asking pt-BR users and pt users this question.
Let us wait for them.
They would tell us whether it would be frustrating to them if they
share the same Portuguese list for user support or not.
