So all of that is php code?

I went to both websites and can't seem to get in at all to read the
installation instructions (in any language).
I could not figure out where to actually go (even though I can somewhat
read Spanish(and therefore some Portuguese)).
I went to
and got an error. "Repeated Operation
Operation blocked. Don't submit the same query, while the old one is
still running..."

2nd time I got a registration form and worked my way through.

Only has a self signed cert, and even after confirming an exception took
forever to load, then requires a login just to browse. No registration
option is visible.

I then poked around until I got to
http://mapas.mma.gov.br/download/arquivos/v4_6/ but couldn't find a deb
to try.

Tentatively I think i3Geo will be a welcome addition but may only be
experimental/optional on version 6. So I encourage you to start
preparing documentation and installation script.

I have big reservations about sites that require logins as the only
means of accessing the community. Not to be US/Euro centric either, but
a few intro English pages on the website to help non Spanish/Portuguese
speakers might be good too (I'll try google translate).

While on that topic are you interested in adding a Portuguese
translation to live.osgeo.org or does written Spanish suffice?
