I don't suggest at any time that there are 3 week coding
What I do say is: in a given functional area, we must agree
what is to be coded, and how, before coding.
Why write code for something that's not wanted or needed, or
which ignores the decisions on RP functionality?
Code all you like in the areas which are agreed on.
Wait for the requirements to be agreed before coding new
coding is ongoing for the Renderer,and various other areas.
Why is waiting a short while before coding the Perception
systems, or the Weather Model, when the discussions on
how they work are still ongoing, such a difficult thing to do?

Having a set of documents that lets newcomers know whats
going on, and how the various bits fit together, both as
interfacing modules, and as tasks in the overall planned
sequence of events, can only help make it easier for new
coders to join.
Making it easier for coders to slot in means an *in*creasing
number of coders.
