[Doc-SIG] Brazilian Portuguese translation coordinate

Hi, all!

Years ago we took Senra's excellent translation of the Python 2.4
Tutorial as a starting point and updated it to Python 2.7, and recoded
it in ReStructuredText.

It's published [1] and the main repo is on github [2]:

[1] http://turing.com.br/pydoc/2.7/tutorial/index.html
[2] https://github.com/ramalho/pydoc-br

Only the tutorial was completed, and I am not aware of a more current

While I revised the translation, I created a document with notes for
Brazilian-Portuguese translators [3], and a list of preferred
translations for the most important words [4]. This is important in
any group translation effort because different people will have
different opinions about terminology, and if there is no agreement the
result will be inconsistent and very confusing to readers:

[3] http://turing.com.br/pydoc/2.7/tutorial/NOTAS.html#notas-tradutores
[4] http://turing.com.br/pydoc/2.7/tutorial/TERMINOLOGIA.html

Feel free to fork the repo and take over the translation, Marco!

I unfortunately cannot help a whole lot now, but I will gladly answer
any questions you may have.

Thanks for the kind words and for connecting us, Rodrigo!
