Well, I'm the person who replied, so I just repeated here what I said there

Patches should be upstreamed by authors whenever possible, and those authors 
need the right permissions if they developed something on behalf of a company. 
So maybe think of SailfishOS instead of Jolla: if someone other than a Jolla 
employee makes a fix for SailfishOS, the Jolla CCLA does not apply. That's how 
it will work for Qt on Tizen, since the people doing work there are doing on 
their own time, not sponsored by any company.
