Does this apply to fedorahosted projects as well? Does this mean I can
not use/copy+paste text from a public domain document (even if it is
cited) if it is going to be stored on fedorahosted?
This probably belongs on fedora-legal-list; moving the discussion there.
Certainly there is nothing actually *barring* you from submitting a
public domain work, and the CLA is not intended to do that either. I
think the intent of this paragraph is to ensure contributors meet their
obligations when submitting work that has some sort of restrictive
license attached, and the contributor isn't also copyright holder.
We are working on a draft for a new and clearer CLA, so if nothing else
this is a point we should be addressing therein.
