Hey, The affiliate was originally formed in 2008 as the wannabe chapter Wikimedia Brasil, and made its life as a chapter until 2010 when it was noticed that it was not incorporated nor had any intention of becoming incorporated, and the whole thing was canceled.
Some of its members and new volunteers in Brazil then immediately joined together to form the chapter again, and there even is a resolution in Wikimania Haifa 2011 about that. The negotiations with affcom took an awful lot of time and bureaucracy, and by 2013 they had already incorporated but were still waiting to have the chapter approved. They eventually managed to be approved as an user group by tlsummer 2013, which is the one that was reapproved now.
