My name is Estevão Vinícius, I teach mathematics at Federal Institute of
Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. I'm also getting my Master's Degree in
Mathematics. My research is about how math is inside MetaPost and we hope
to persuade teachers and professors to use it to their latex papers, tests,

My mentor and I are happy to produce metapost material in portuguese. We
couldn't find any researches about it in our language. I talked to John
Hobby these days about it and he's allowed me to publish a portuguese
version of  "MetaPost - a user’s manual" and sent me the files he has from
it. But he only has the older version.

I asked him about this version of February 19th, 2018 and he wasn't aware
of it. He said he gave Taco Hoekwater and all the MetaPost development team
the freedom to do whatever you guys want. So I hope I can get an answer
from you guys.

Is it possible to you send me the files (.tex, .mp, ....) so I can
translate it to brazilian portuguese?  This would be a helping hand for me
to create a top quality translation material.

I'd like to add another question: do you know anything about a mathematics
research group studying MetaPost? I can't find anything.

Thank you in advance and I hope to talk to you soon again!
