After my current understanding of how and affects and anyone who contributes to it:

* F-Droid org makes the "product" so it would be liable
* F-Droid is currently entirely non-commercial, handles no money
* Volunteer contributors are very clearly exempt from all this
* Donation funded contributions are also exempt
* Contracted contributors are helping build the regulated product, so the legal entities of the contractors would not be liable for F-Droid's "product"


Based on @maarten 's post I think the only people listed in my example that would be at all regulated by the would be the last one: "contracted contributors". It sounds like they might be considered "open source software stewards" with obligations under Article 17a depending on whether the considers F-Droid as "intended for commercial activities"

My guess is /#Ubuntu would be considered commercial while /#Debian would not
