I'm not a lawyer, doing a search in the wiki I see a written
limitation in the Export Policy

Here what it states:
 | Fedora's software and/or technical data may NOT be
exported/reexported, either directly or indirectly, to the following
 | embargoed or restricted destinations:
 | Cuba, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Sudan or Syria.
 | Please note: this list is subject to change.

I don't know what "technical data" means in legalese, but it could be
interesting, as David suggested, to have a better clarification on
this issue.
