is the case where the Fedora packager is also the copyright holder
for the package being contributed.
I am the original author and copyright holder for a package. That
package is currently distributed with the GPLv2 license. If I sign
the CLA and complete the package contribution, does this mean that
the original upstream source would no longer covered by the GPLv2
license, but rather by the CLA ?
No. The CLA does not and cannot alter the licensing of any work
brought to Fedora. It is purely for the work done for Fedora by Fedora
contributors, such as wiki entries, spec files (that aren't otherwise
provided/licensed via upstream), documentation, etc...
