I am currently working my way through the French tree after completing the Irish, Spanish and Esperanto trees. While looking at my progress vs how much is left, I noticed the French tree is much longer than the other languages I completed. For Irish and Esperanto I can understand because they're not as popular and so there was probably less development going into making the courses. What really surprised me was after going through a few languages the one that I noticed had the longest tree was the Welsh tree which pretty much destroys my theory.

Is there any rhyme or reason as to which languages have the most material? Does anyone have a spreadsheet that compares all the languages and how many topics or words they have in their course?

All I know is that the wiki has a list of each language tree and how many skills and lessons it has. It doesn't explain why (at least as far as I know.)

http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Duolingo_Wiki

EDIT: MOST of the languages they mention have the skills and lessons thing, courses like Welsh, Guarani, Hebrew, and Hungarian don't.
