Hi Joao,

To be honest, I don't like the idea of involving like tens of thousands 
of Brazillians with poor English communication skills in a way that 
requires asking for permission on this list. It is of course great if we 
can get help to create or collect the resources we have decided to add, 
but I don't see why you would need to ask us for permission to manage 
something like that on a site not administrated by us.

As long as you take care of managing the whole thing and don't use this 
list for it (except perhaps linking to existing discussions), this is 
fine with me.
