Sure, we can include that.

That makes no sense. Which options did you call qmake with?
Which platform is this on?

A 'team'. Hmm.
I manage and populate the web. I have a few volunteers who translate
some of the content to threir native language.

We have basically no content in Portuguese at this point, so I think
I'll remove that language choice. French, Spanish and Polish are very
well maintained. Embarrassingly, German is not, but I find it remarkably
hard to translate into reasonable German these days...
