Appreciate the answer and clarification Spot; I was aware that there's a
list of individuals and groups that are restricted, but the wording on
the fedora export restriction terms were much much broader than that.
How does the availability of "get-fedora" to those regions relate into
this answer? Doesn't it violate the same conditions by allowing the
download in the first place?
Our current pages are in compliance with US Export policy. This is an
area where we have spent much time, and have dedicated people at Red Hat
Legal who handle export compliance.
