Did you miss the detail about the contribution agreement not
granting any rights to third parties until the OpenSSL
Foundation has "published" the contribution.

In other words, if the only license provided in the Pull
request is "this is a contribution", then there is no license
for making that downstream repo.

Also, isn't GitHub located in the country crypto folk always
try to avoid for legal reasons?
