Well done volunteers on this. Every small change is work by someone for free, to benefit others. #AppreciatingVolunteers

Finally getting audio for Swahili is great!
Also welcome to the new contributors of the Swahili course :)

(I already wrote a comment about this yesterday but it's not there anymore, maybe I accidentally deleted it ...)

Latin has 18 contributors, yet no work has been done yet. I may be impatient, but I feel a bit disappointed.

How do you know that no work has been done behind the scene? Particularly with a language such as Latin with no native speakers and a very complex grammar, there will be lots of things that need to be discussed and decided before any actual work on the tree can start. After all, you do want to have a well structured, logical tree and not something thrown together at the spur of a moment, right?

The high number of contributors might be good, but it also causes organisational issues. Everyone has their opinion how things should be handled, and these opinions need to be carefully weighed and distilled into the best approach. They also need to carefully assign roles and tasks of each distributor to be as efficient as possible. The more contributors, the more (and longer) discussions will be necessary and the more time will needed for organization.

You are absolutely right, I hope these are the reasons why it takes so long for the work on the course to be visible.

Yet they could have posted an update, informing the community that work there has begun.

Given the particular language, maybe they only post updates in the original forum
