Is the Yiddish course ever going to get done?

I made my original account a while back and the Yiddish to English course sat at 20% back then. It today sits at the same amount of progress; 20%. Can we as a community call for staff to replace the contributors/add new ones to the course to ensure it actually gets done?

Earlier this week I found these articles from several months ago about Yiddish and Duolingo:

https://aiaconnect.wordpress.com/2015/08/03/what-flag-and-what-alphabet-for-a-flagless-multi-alphabet-language/

Maybe the contributors disagreed with each other about some of this and some other things too? I don't know.

This could be the product of the inactivity. But even then, there will need to be a removal of the current contributors and a regrouping process in which new contributors are selected to build off what the current contributors have completed.

Some contributors disappeared from the incubator page last week, hopefully that is a sign of something. And sorry to further burst your bubble, but the course is only at 8% progress. Its never been up to 20% before.
