        Thank you very much!

        Oh, I never heard about that.

        I mostly agree.  The issue for me isn’t traffic at all, but the fact
that quite some people have been writing to me in private, and for at least
some of them I think English may be a problem.  So I thought a separate,
Portuguese list might enable some more collaboration.

        Perhaps we should postpone this for when our efforts really ask for it
more clearly.

        Oh, why the Humanists had to kill Latin… ;-)

        None of these seem to be neither Portuguese, nor any dialect of it,
nor any language spoken in the Lusofonia.  They seem to be mostly languages
spoken in Central America, former British Africa and perhaps at the Andes.

	While perhaps not directly related to what we have been trying to do,
I do think that Wycliffe Bibles for Brasilian indigenal languages (Tupi,
Guarani, Nheengatu, Quilombola, Lanc-Patuá, Maku, Yanomami and quite some
others) or for languages spoken in other parts of Lusofonia (Timor, Moçambique
&c.) would be very useful to many missionaries, so they may warrant our
attention even before Portuguese, if obtaining or scanning Portuguese texts
continues to prove elusive.  So please keep us posted when further Wycliffe
texts become available.
