Proposal: Stack Overflow (in Portuguese)
As this proposal gets dangerously close to the two year mark, I'm wondering what would happen to it if we don't reach 100% by november 05. I've seen other similar proposals closed under the 2 year criteria (like the French and Spanish ones, though they both had <100 committed so far), but I'm not sure whether or not that applies here. Does it? Is the two year period a sufficient condition for closing, or are other factors taken into account as well?
If you look at the graph at the right of the proposal screen (showing the evolution of number of committers through time) you'll see that, while it was slow in the first year, the numbers sharply rose about April/May of this year, and again around July, and keep increasing (though somewhat slowly). Besides, the total number of committers is about 50% higher than the minimum, only a handful of people with 200+ rep in other sites are still needed. IMHO that shows the proposal still has momentum, and as such, should not be closed unless the number of supporters stop growing for some more time.
Also, as noted in a related disussion, the 200+ rep rule is a bit problematic in regards of foreign language proposals, and while I agree that this rule should not be relaxed, at least giving us a little more time to meet the requirements would be a great help. Since SE sites often suffer from the fastest gun in the west problem, people who have English as a second language are in a bit of disadvantage when "competing" for a good and fast answer (at least I feel this way, and I consider myself rather fluent when reading and writing at least).
