According to the Mach license:

"   2. If  the  LICENSEE  develops  any  enhancements to the software which
      materially improves its operation  and  if  those  enhancements  are
      redistributed  to  others, LICENSEE agrees to make such enhancements
      available to LICENSOR  without  charge  and  to  allow  LICENSOR  to
      redistribute  such  modifications  and  derivative  works thereof to
      others.   LICENSOR  agrees  to  withhold  source  redistribution  of
      LICENSEE's  machine  dependent software enhancements for a period of
      eighteen months at the written request of the LICENSEE."

So, why isn't OSX code made freely available via the Mach license?
