Let's consider how likely this export restriction is to prevent a
member of the Syrian government or military from obtaining a copy of
Fedora? Not very likely. How likely this export restriction is to hurt
a random person, e.g. trying to install open source to avoid
restrictions imposed by their government? The first is a joke, the
second is high enough to keep this restriction in the same contempt
as the Syrian government's ban on "proxy".
