Version Control with Subversion

Last week I was thinking about to begin the work of translation to
Brazillian Portuguese together with another guy who works here with
me. We are interested in taking part on this work. However, I think
someone have to coordinate the work, not only synchronizing the
translation with the continuous development of the English version,
but also distributing the tasks between the translators and ensuring
that translated parts were reviewed by everybody in the translation
group. Actually, I can't do this coordination due to lack of spare
time, but you can count with us for help on the translation.

I'm including a copy of this message to Eduardo, who's the other one
interested in the translation.
