these are not obligations on MacKichan, all they can be is a request.
The _obligation_ on MacKichan is that they

 a) do not claim copyright or obscure the existing copyrights
 b) make the source available
 c) release the source of any improvements

I am willing to bet much money that they have not followed b)
