Yiddish has made progress!
This weeks WIS (Weekly Incubator Summary) shows that Yiddish, a language that has been inactive for months, has made a lot of progress! If you go to the Contributor page, you'll see that there is a new contributor named anna.bonazzi! For some reason however, Mendl is gone and there's no golden contributors left. Yiddish is now ~25% done, last week it was ~23%, which means that Yiddish had made ~2% in one week, and it is a quarter of the way there! Maybe Yiddish will be coming soon.

YAY!!! THE INCUBATOR PROJECTS ARE ALL GETTING REVIVED I'M SO EXCITED!!!!! Hopefully the same will happen to other dead incubator projects soon!!! Thank you so much for sharing this!!!
Don't get your hopes up too high. That doesn't mean they will progress much further. This teeny tiny bit of progress could just be followed by 3 years of stagnation.
Yiddish course contributors said they are doing most or their work offline, so we won't see many updates. Something I remember one saying when they first announced this course.
Yay!!! Now that's one language I'm looking forward to!
Is anyone considering making Ladino as well? Since it's almost extinct?
So excited for the course to come out! Ever since I found out that there was a Yiddish course in the incubator (this was about 3-4 years ago), I've been waiiiiiting for it to make more progress!
I know people who know Yiddish, but nobody comes to mind that might help update. I've been thinking of learning myself. My dictionary has translations for seven languages. They are all one-word definitions, but it might be helpful. Is there copyright or other issues to just type these in? I could do some of that if somebody would point me to the right place and let me know about the Copyright issue. --Iyyov
Same. I know someone (one person) who speaks Scottish Gaelic, but he can barely teach his subject at school (yep, he's a teacher). I guess if I asked him he could apply to contribute, but one person is not enough. Heck, the amount of times I have applied for Afrikaans is not even funny.
I'm holding off on a full-scale celebration until there's an official status update from the team, e.g. a new projected completion date, since we obviously missed last July.
YES!!! YES, YES!!! I've been waiting for Duo Yiddish... Thank you Duo - PLEASE add this as an official course!
How are we cluttering up the forum when this is legit news? Why would we go to the weekly incubator summary for a course that's been stagnant for years?
