I think what Thiago tries to tell us here is that

  1) The Brazilian community would like to have a platform on the web to
     present itself and Xfce to Brazilians under the subdomain

  2) They could also provide a Brazilian mirror for Xfce.

Here are my opinions:

I'm not sure about the subdomain. To make it easier
for other user communities to present themselves in their area, I'd
rather suggest to create a subdomain or where we create subdirectories like or for
different communities. Whether we put up a wiki or allow different URLs
to be redirected somewhere else is another matter. We could also create
a nice entry point on with blog, news and
twitter aggregation for instance (this requires work though, so for now
we could just make it a list of communities which use the platform).

2) Not sure we need another mirror, but if it's reliable I wouldn't
mind. The mirror could have the subdomain then, just like for instance.
