According to this page - https://www.duolingo.com/course/en/ru/all - the Russian course is about to exit the beta. To be precise, it's 95% completed. It looks like it will be the first incubator course to graduate from beta. However it is followed closely by the Dutch course, which is at 92%.

It looks like from start to finish it takes about three months, at least for a faster type of course.

Sorry to bring this up, but has there been any indication when the English to Russian course will be available? I have been watching the forums, but I haven't seen anything yet.

When I asked the staff about that bar they said it was just based on time since beta release. That was a little while ago though so I don't know if they've changed the formula since then.

If we check the bar with inspect element it says 94,5% which is total progress including the phase 1. So the current status of beta stage for Russian course is 89% = 2 x ( total progress - 50%)

So English for German speakers was actually the first Incubator course to get all the way to completion, but it did it so quickly that I guess many people forget it didn't exist before the Incubator.

True, but that was made by the Duolingo team, rather than Duolingo users. :)
