I like this wording and don't see a need for any additions. Like Doug, I
consider constant evolution part of software production. We could use
"develop" instead of "produce" as the former is more on-going. It also
has connotations of "software development" however which neglects the
non-software parts of the platform. On balance I'm happy with "produce".
