Possible good news on Linux to Iraq

It's a confusing document, but I'm asking crypto export lawyers to see if Executive Order 13550 means we can send Linux CDs to Iraq now.

Export controls don't keep Iraqis from getting the latest distributions, but removing export controls would just mean that US and Iraqi citizens could collaborate on software projects, which would be good news for the new IT industry in Iraq.

(go Iraq!)
