Ouch!  You clearly haven't adopted "agile" methods such as Extreme
Programming yet.  "Keeping a low profile until the software is stable"
is a good, nutshell description of why most software projects FAIL.

Please, for your own good, at least investigate these things and
consider how you might apply them or adapt them to your own needs.

See http://www.agilealliance.org/ and http://www.extremeprogramming.org/
for a start.

I'll be more confident that we will if you actually don't keep a low
profile. ;-)
