Hi Eric,

I think there is a misunderstand about this "point". I know that if I
want to create a new tutorial page in PT-BR, I need to (first) create an
EN-US equivalent one. This is a common-point. A rule that we all agree.

But, the Brazilian portuguese translation was already created based on
the similar (and original) installation page in English. So, they have
the "same" path and name:

EN-US: http://docs.slackware.com/slackware:install

PT-BR: http://docs.slackware.com/pt-br:slackware:install

The only "difference" is the "content" inside.

There, I made many modifications (and {modularization|expansion}) in the
content, to help attend both new and advanced Brazilian Linux (and
Slackware) users that want to use Slackware Linux in their computers.
So, this is a translation based in an already existent page, and not a
new one (both in path, focus, theme and name).

But I really would like to see this extra-content (and new structure)
that I created in the PT-BR version, in the original page. So, if anyone
wants to help translate my install page version from PT-BR to EN-US, I
will be glad :)

But (again) for this task, I need your (first) approve and (second)
help. I will not "touch" the EN-US install page without your approval.
So, if you all approve my install version, we can work together to
re-create the EN-US install page based on my PT-BR modifications. And I
need your help because I'm not so proficient in English to do this task
alone ;)

Best Regards.
