Right, the main ftp server is in the Netherlands. All the rest are (cached) copies. I'm not a lawyer, but I would say that this means that the code isn't exported from the USA. It was already outside. I'm not sure about the CVS server at SourceForge. Generally I don't really care about these stupid US rules. The actual result is not that access to strong encryption by non-US contries decreases but that the development is done outside of the US, with the effect that knowledge outside of the US grows. -- TIM: Too late.
