I don't know about the legal details and I don't have time to read up about it, but I would note that FreeBSD is already exported by default since it is copied by people in many countries and there are mirrors in other countries. It is not explicitly exported by the FreeBSD Foundation, but its movement around the world is quite thorough, done by those who use it. There was a time that the encryption issue made things difficult for some people using FreeBSD, but the Gov standards were changed and the issue quieted down. I don't know if it is solved. ////jerry > > Connie > > -----Original Message----- > From: Jerry McAllister [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] > Sent: Wednesday, July 23, 2008 9:12 AM > To: darko gavrilovic > Cc: Chocas, Connie S; freebsd-questions@FreeBSD.org > Subject: Re: Free BSD 6.3 Export Control Classification > > On Tue, Jul 22, 2008 at 06:54:39PM -0400, darko gavrilovic wrote: > > > http://www.freebsd.org/where.html > > I don't see anywhere in that reference that the question is answered > or even alluded to.
