When I saw the Opensource.com April preview call for articles about Impostor Syndrome my first reaction was: "Oh wow, I'd love to write a post for that. Too bad I don't have anything worth saying."

This is not a company that owns a project published under an open source license trying to also ship a product of the same name (e.g. Docker, MySQL), but the situation shares many of the same problems. Neither is this a company building products out of open source projects to which they contribute but don't control (e.g. Red Hat's RHEL). This is a company with an existing product revenue stream trying to create a project out of the product.
