Yes and no. It depends on how you want to structure the whole thing -  
create a website for it and installa wiki motor, or use an existing  
structure (puredata.info) to put the info. I have no idea on how to do the  
first one, but once a space with a motor exists, it doesn't take much work  
to do a rudimentary structure. I have no idea of html, so a real site with  
search function, cross-reference etc is out of the way for me.

ok. I don't live in Portugal for many years, but I think Portuguese are  
more used to read in foreign languages (mainly english). Then you could  
also tell them about pdpedia, so that anyone can help with that.
