I'd like to sponsor a new packager (CC'd) and help him get
his project  into Fedora. He happens to be a Sudanese.
As Sudan appears to be a sanctioned country, I'd like to check
whether this is legally alright.
Thank you in advance,

Question A. Which Sudan ? There are two now. Question B. Is he just
Sudanese, as you put it, or does he reside there. If he resides there,
then Sudan falls under export restrictions. Applies to US Citizens. This
also encompasses technology, and as such software.
Now, there is also a clause stating the importation of goods and
services of Sudanese origin. Which now begs the question is a free thing
a good or a service, as there is no payment for such.
Richard will have to answer that one, I am afraid.
Why does the US have to always make things so complicated, we just
banned weapons exports.
