Sept 3, 2003 Free Software Licensing in Context Building community: RMS's "Software Sharing Commune"

EMACS ... does not cost anything; instead, you must join the EMACS software-sharing commune. The conditions of membership are that you must send back any improvements you make to EMACS, including any libraries you write, and that you must not redistribute the system except exactly as you got it, complete. (You can also distribute your customizations, separately.) - Richard M. Stallman, Emacs Manual, 1981
