Default Portuguese to pt_PT

Reported by: fabiotiagomarques@… Owned by: anybody
Component: unknown Data Locale: pt

The base language for Portuguese is pt_PT, there's no valid reason for it to be pt_BR

If we consider the amount of speakers then we should have es_MX as the base language for Spanish and not es_ES.

This is actually a crime, historically speaking. Setting the default value of "pt", to a dialect of the original language makes non-sense, even when the original language still exists and is spoken by millions of people.

It is understood that Brazilian Portuguese has a higher number of speakers compared to European Portuguese, however, there must be a difference. Portuguese is the language from Portugal.

If you want to use defaults, simply remove the "pt" and create specific variants for pt-br and pt-pt. Clearly PT should NOT be pt-br.

This would be a destabilizing change.
