Case studies are fine. The neutrality bit comes from letting anyone post
a case study. If submissions were limited (e.g. to employers of
committers or even worse employers of a subset of committers) then that
would be a problem and expect the board to be "most seriously displeased".

As an example, Tomcat has a Wiki pages (so anyone can edit them) for
users [1], support providers and training providers[2].
