The CLA covers this:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal/Licenses/CLA

"2. Contributor Grant of License. You hereby grant to Red Hat, Inc., on
behalf of the Project, and to recipients of software distributed by the
Project: 
      * (a) a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, fully paid-up,
        royalty free, irrevocable copyright license to reproduce,
        prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform,
        sublicense, and distribute your Contribution and such derivative
        works; and, 
      * (b) a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, fully paid-up,
        royalty free, irrevocable (subject to Section 3) patent license
        to make, have made, use, offer to sell, sell, import, and
        otherwise transfer your Contribution and derivative works
        thereof, where such license applies only to those patent claims
        licensable by you that are necessarily infringed by your
        Contribution alone or by combination of your Contribution with
        the work to which you submitted the Contribution. Except for the
        license granted in this section, you reserve all right, title
        and interest in and to your Contributions."

Short answer: All Fedora spec files get these rights. Anyone downloading
them gets them too.
