Please explain to me: What meaning has the CLA (a contract between a
Fedora contributer and Fedora/Red Hat) to someone else that receives
software from Fedora?

I'm not familiar with US law, but in Germany a contract between A and B
has no meaning to C.

My packages are not relevant here. It's about cooperation as a whole. If
foo(¹) wants to use a spec file from Fedora as base for a package in his
repo then he needs to be sure that it is a legal thing to do.

(¹) foo could be Dag, Livna, RPM Fusion or my neighbor
