MySQL have a joint commercial/GPL license. Their income stream is the commercial version and they will not accept code contributions without the copyright.

The simply the licensing scheme, the more likely you are to get involvement. Sun was ridiculed for introducing their own Open Source licenses when there are already lots, including the GPL and the AFPL if you want to stop commercial use.
