Hindi for English speakers

I'm really not clear on how the contributor process works but something seems a miss. The Hindi incubator team isn't accepting new contributors and is missing every deadline. Shouldn't this be an impetus to get additional contributors or offer it up to a team that's willing to get'er done?

I agree. If a contributor can't be bothered to make any progress in several months, he/she should be replaced.

I feel the sole existing 'contributor' is too proud to admit that he's bitten off more than he can chew. The rate of progress has been dismal.

I totally agree. I wonder how/when Duolingo steps in.

It's not like the lone contributor is inactive. He's got nearly a 1300 day streak going. An update, at least, would be helpful. The crazy part is, I've seen people saying that they've applied to contribute, but nothing ever comes of it. I wonder who is in charge of accepting contributors.

The Hindi course contributor is in charge of accepting contributors. He does absolutely no work yet denies everyone. This is why he should be replaced.

Oh I totally agree, even an update would be helpful!

I'm a native speaker and applied multiple times! My husband is dying to learn Hindi so I figured why not help to create the course..but nothing. It's a hard language, so I understand the difficulties, but I also understand what it's like to be a project leader...so my sympathies have run dry at this point.

Oh I did....twice! Received a perfunctory - we're all taken care of but thanks.
