CLA and App Store

Hi Fabiene,

i was thinking about signing the CLA [1] for bugfix merges. But i have a
question before, it is related to

i quote from the CLA:

What is the contract partner:

"Thank you for your interest in an Odoo S.A. (the "Project Leads" )"

What means "Contribution"?

See Definitions
"For the purposes of this definition, "submitted" means any form of
electronic, verbal, or written communication sent to the Project Leads
or their representatives, [..]"

So as i see in the App Store Upload [2]
the page title "Submit your Apps & Themes"
and the action "Submit my Apps & Themes!"

makes clear that we submit code to Odoo S.A. and their is no additional
contract for redistributing module (of any kind).

So i m not a lawyer and only a little developer try to do license and
contribution agreements right. So can you explain why the Odoo CLA
affects not app store or do affect app store?
If it affects i can not sign CLA or i need to remove our modules first.

In the CLA something is there as markt as "Not a Contribution.". So if
uploading Apps is not a Contribution then this should be marked there i

Kind Regards
