Of course this is good engineering practice, but you will appreciate that it is not how software projects are usually managed. The usual process starts with a blueprint, then goes through to analysis and development and finally testing (at which point it's a huge mess of code which doesn't work at all). It takes months to get things working again.
It has taken decades for a few people to value constant stability, and even so most of the world isn't there yet. So it is not strange that it should take a couple of years to get used to such a process.
