Are the 10 external dependencies changing each day?
Who is building the 13 jars?

How are you going to use SNAPSHOTS in the pre-beta phase?

If you really believe that you are building something that no one else 
has ever done, you may be justified in breaking new ground.

You are going to be pretty much on your own since no one here is going 
to have any experience in doing what you are planning.
The manuals and books are going to be less help to you since much of 
their processes will not apply to you.

Every time you ask a question, you are going to get a lot of incorrect 
advice and a lot of questions about the context of your questions, if 
anyone has the time to get involved in something that is not clear.

Remember that everyone here is busy with their own projects and take a 
few seconds to scan the incoming stuff to decide whether they have a 
quick answer.
You are not going to meet that criteria for most people.
