Thank you very much! The Fedora nightlies are indeed back to normal.

This is not correct. The tag was there from the very beginning, Wayne
just changed its value from CC0-1.0 to CC-BY-SA-4.0 [1].
I'm not an AppStream expert myself, just noticed the packaging failure
and tracked it down to your patch. I guess the issue would have been
discovered anyways (sooner or later). Maybe the Fedora tooling is just a
bit stricter than that of other Linux distributions.
