I would think of Fedorahosted just as i would think of a paid colo
facility.  Just because I may have offered software for download via the
colo facility, and then I terminate my account (either due to ending a
contract, or breach of contract) doesn't put the colo facility on the
legal hook for software I may have hosted there.

Same goes for Fedorahosted.  We can have a clear agreement as to what
would breach one's "contract" with Fedorahosted, and that Fedorahosted
is not responsible for any legal obligations regarding source
availability.
