I'm asking the Fedora legal team to review the latest Audacity license

Also it now collects a lot of sensitive data and send them to Google and
Yandex. I believe this violates the GDPR.

I think this application is no longer completely free and open source
and should be removed from Fedora.

Please don't blow things out of proportion. All the networking features that the maintainers of Audacity have added can be disabled in the build system through appropriate CMake variables, and then the resulting binaries won't contain any code to provide usage data/crash reports/update checking.
