Greg named a few. I think it has a lot more to do with available time and attention than any sort of overt competitive moves.

ah, okay. Still, not taking one's time to properly upstream a fix is usually motivated by commercial constraints; it's just not malicious ;)

No, it's usually the non-commercial (i.e. no corporate backing) that are the worse offenders.

With the notable exception of Debian, they are wonderful, and push their stuff upstream to me very well, as does Fedora. Those two are the best, everyone else is bad, with some much worse than others.
