Good, thanks. :)
1) Are they properly handling all the legal/trademark bits as
expected, if they're not and we back them it could bite later?
I think they're doing it right, yeah. Their remix is listed at:

They're building on our work. As the trademark guidlines say, ". The
Secondary Mark provides downstream distributors a means to indicate
their work includes or is derived from Fedora content, and thereby
drive more interest in the Fedora Project itself." -- I think that's
pretty much exactly the situation here.
One approach would certainly be to ask them to use the Fedora Remix
mark and a statement like "CloudRouter is proud to be a Fedora Remix"
or similar, rather than the main logo and the list-of-sponsors thing.
3) are they actively contributing?
