So you're telling me there's files, but you will not import because no one
of the Portuguese speakers helped in the cleaning process? Then I'll
have to start
from scratch (something that already exists), denying the existence of a
community and the previous project and I still have to go through
various bureaucratic
processes, so that maybe one day the project (that already exists) come into

More than that, we have to manually import the WikiTravel, and as we
have no import
tool, we will not be able to bring together the history, so authorship is
not properly credited, breaking the license, something which we can not do.
Soon, we will have to find a way to give credit to those who wrote, or even
write from scratch... so pretty...

I really wanted to understand the reason for not bringing all the languages
of Wikitravel ... everything was under a free license, it would give a
lot more work? More work than the work to make 2000 new articles in pt?

Tomorrow I restart the project, and maybe in 6 years it will come to have
the 2000 articles again. For today I have to cancel activities for the next
semester that could increase project visibility, after all it does not exist

I know that Wikipedia is The priority, but for the love of god!
