Developing an ETF

Does anyone here have experience with making an ETF? I have seen various different opinions on the internet and would like to hear any personal stories. How much does it cost to develop/maintain? Are mutual funds cheaper to develop?

ETF space is highly commoditized. Fee is compressed. Not sure why do you want to join the battle of whose-management-fee-lower.
