Default Copyrighted specfiles.

I have a specfile that begins with:

# Copyright 2006-2008 Double Precision, Inc.
# See COPYING for distribution information.

It looks like the specfile is carried in the tarball and the
maintainer just copies it out for the Fedora package. But this means
that when you unpack the srpm, you get a spec that refers to a file
which does not exist.

Is it too much to ask that if for some reason you're going to
copyright the specfile you at least indicate the license in the
specfile?

Are specfiles covered by the Individual Contributor License Agreement
(CLA) ?

Yes, but only if they have no previous license. It does not replace the
existing Copyright or licensing for the specfile.
