Hi Matt,

I created a FAS account some time ago.  I did not proceed with adding my
site because this requires that you agree with the "Export Restrictions".

I don't see many sites added.  Probabaly because most people realize
that it comes down to this:

      If you agree with these Export Restrictions you will violate
      these rules anytime somone who isn't liked by the US downloads
      any piece of Fedora from your mirror.

Run a mirror, help Red Hat, and get arrested next time you visit the USA ..

Besides any political or moral right/wrongness of these Export
to comply with them !!!

The whole mirrormanager thing will (unfortunatly !) never work
as long as agreeing to these Export Restrictions is required.

Mirror-admins: be very carful with what you sign or agree to !

	friendly greetings,
	Rob van Nieuwkerk
