To Open Roadmap or Not To Open Roadmap - Do you believe having an open roadmap is beneficial? Why or why not?

I get LOTS of feature requests but maybe 99% of them are things I already have on my to-do list. So when I get repeats, I just add votes to those things. I'm wondering if I should open up my roadmap and let people vote themselves or if keeping the roadmap to myself will allow me to be more flexible with what features I release when.

Do you believe having an open roadmap is beneficial? Why or why not?

    I think it's probably beneficial early on since it gives your customers more knowledge and more incentive to communicate with you. Once you're huge and have more resources than agility, then it probably pays to be secretive.

      That totally makes sense. I'm probably more just nervous about letting people see into my brain because none of it is organized in a user-friendly way right now haha
