Even if I have no intention of learning it, I'm always excited whenever a new language is launched. Thanks for posting this!

Excellent, though I have no plans to do the course myself. I thought we might see this fairly soon after the English for Indonesian speakers course graduated from beta recently.

The two languages are very close. Almost like US English vs UK English, though maybe slightly further apart. Speakers of one generally understand the other.

I can't wait. I love bahasa Indonesia. I will definitely be learning it when the course comes out. I have tried learning it using other programs, but I find Duolingo to be the best format for me, so this is super exciting.

YES. I love the sound of Indonesian and have an odd sort of attraction to it. I'll definitely be doing it as soon as it comes out.

I know, and more than once. I've seen them after I posted myself. I failed to make a search for it before posting, despite what I preach myself. Sorry about it.

I just wished they made an official announcement and pinned it. Especially if it was from the course contributors - so we could thank them for all the work they are going to do.

Because the estimated launch date is automatically calculated based on the number of translated sentences out of the total written (which are both 0 at the launch of a new course), so the time needed to make 0 sentences is 0 : ready now.
