I would like to clarify that I said that just as an expression, not
necessary as the 'classification of this list'. Just to say that there
should be more languages than just Spanish and Portuguese if we are to
translate the "global-south" list.

Yes this makes sense. We actually entered this discussion a few times
during the montreal meeting. And if I recall it correctly we just didn't
do this before Primavera Hacker because we wanted to have the need to do
it before going out creating language/region lists without having people
to use them :)

So I guess now we are entering the phase we wanted and I don't see a
reason why not have a list like LatAm.
