Oh my dear beloved Steven, It VERY much is.

The editors who wrote the biggest number of articles is Portuguese (Nuno
Tavares), the one who run pretty much all the bots in pt wiki and is also
Adm and crat is also portuguese (Alchimista aka André Barbosa), the one who
created and put foward the policy of a unified Wikipedia portuguese (the AO
version) is also Portuguese (Manuel de Sousa).

The fact is that Brasil is in the strategic planning, and Portugal isn't.
So WMF tend to forgot us.
