They basically say, you can redistribute modified versions as long as
you make available to the patches for the changes you make.

Yes, it seems you are right. I misread, but there is no explicit permission
to redistribute modified version (the wording is 'use, copy, modify, and enhance and distribute'). So I think I wrongly supposed, based on the following
that the redistribution of modified source wasn't possible, but after a more
carefull reading, it seems that it is not explicitely forbidden, as the following states that the copyright of changes must be transfered to upstream not anything else...

I haven't read the license, but your descriptions sound similar to the license for gnuplot, which is in core. You may want to look at its license. I think it says that modifications may only be distributed as patches.
