Cultural issues can be sensitive and should be decided by the NL groups
themselves. The INGOTs is a much smaller project than OO yet we provide
support for Br-pt and Pt-pt - although more has been done with Br-pt simply
because we have a volunteer. We have even the possibility for US and UK
English in the general infrastructure and we will provide support for any
other language if requested.
