Hi Joseph!

Do you work with many companies that are not yet COSS, but intend to open-source their software? I feel like the discussions involved in making a company COSS from the beginning are different from the discussions about transitioning into making their existing products open source.

I'm wondering if you have any thoughts on the differences between the two situations, and if you have any tips on how to more effectively dissolve friction from people who are feeling like they'll lose existing value if the code is made open-source?
