Hi Frank.

I have listed in 
http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/Like_Minded_Regional_Organizations a 
initial information about Brazil community and events.
There are 2 projects that I have worked with a development team of 
OpenGEO Company (www.opengeo.com.br): Geolivre Linux (Distro in 
brazilian portuguese language) and Open 3D GIS (www.open3dgis.org).
The Geolivre Linux had more than 3.000 downloads in one week and we have 
received many requests to make a english version to users in others 
countries. Probability in next version we will make a english and 
spanish version.
I'm publishing news about OSGeo in brazilian communities of FOSS 
GeoTechnologies (MapServer Brasil group in yahoo).
