  Yes, pt translation was migrated from legacy squeakland release with
bunch of translations for its supported languages.  pt_BR was just
copied from POT and no one working on until now.

 I think how to populate translations is up to the language team.  So
you could discuss with team listed in
  It seems that uploading PO to Pootle doesn't work (when I tested it
Pootle stopped). so you will need to ask localization team or etoys
for help to merge translations and commit to repository.

  I am not sure whether providing pt_br is really important even if
that is same as pt...  You could install better translations onto XO
even after update.1 is released.

  Unfortunately Pootle doesn't have such feature at this time.
