Enterprise open source is bleak. There aren't very many enterprise open source projects with pure intent anymore, they are all looking for the big payday, which unfortunately companies like Google and Facebook have encouraged.

Look at Confluent/Kafka. The PMC is stuffed with Confluent employees and they behave that way. They aren't acting like an Apache project, they are only acting in their own self interest. Any new ideas get the run around, and only their ideas see the light of day. I don't even know why they bother being open source, except maybe to get the free development and bug fixes.
