Hi Pedro,

Thank you for your great contribution. I'm very happy it is now fully translated in Portuguese.

And of course it would be great if you are willing to help out some more in the spare time you 

Several people agree with you that merging all documentation into one would be a good thing. 
Perhaps you can contribute to this goal (at any level, like: coming up with a strategy or 
effectively doing the work).

Other than that there are several documentation bugs which you may be interested in tackling.

Or as John already proposed on your last pull request, if you added more documentation to the 
Pt version than was available in the original English edition, perhaps you can translate your 
personal additions back into English for inclusion.

All of these are just suggestions. Feel free to pick up any part you like. Each contribution 
however big or small is appreciated.
