That's still off.  You're describing copyleft or "reciprocal" licensing.
Permissive licenses like Apache 2.0 or those used for most BSD projects
nowadays are also free software licenses, but they don't require
reciprocity--you're allowed to make changes and publish the results
*without* sharing the changes you made to the underlying source.
