In http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2002/01/msg00051.html it is
claimed that "you must send your changes back upstream" requirements
have been rejected as DFSG-free by debian-legal since 1998.

And, if you're interested in this, please take a look at
http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2003/10/msg00296.html in which I
claim not to understand something, which I still don't understand and
understand even less after reading the follow-up which Branden
described as "expressing this so clearly".
