The BBC informed me that the lusophone countries have started a process to adopt new spelling rules. These spelling rules are especially welcomed by countries like Angola who struggle to raise literacy in their country; one orthography would make things easier. At the same time, some Portuguese politicians see it as a capitulation to Brazilian interests...

What I am interested in is what effet it will have on projects like Wiktionary and Wikipedia. The orthography has been adopted by some and not by others. It is intended that the whole of the Lusophony will adopt this orthography.. So what will it be for the Wiki projects ??
