Despite the political implications, Fedora is Free Software and is based
on Free Software. As is, Fedora, or any other spin, should be exported

point of view, makes no different than just selling and promoting
I understand your concerns, but I don't agree with "Distros based on USA
won't send any material to Cuba", if this turns out to be true, I will
not believe in this "Free as in Freedom/Free Software Free Society"
