Re: Non-US or \"without Non-US\"?

my suggestion is

binary-i386.iso (w/NON-US progees)
binary-i386-us-exportable.iso (w/o NON-US progees)

i think that the population outside US is bigger than US, moreover, we
should consider US's policy as a kind of huh, exception policy, so that we
can probably make 'US' exception and not 'non-US' exception.

just my $0.02 :)

new name, new look, new ftp:
linuxxxxx.dyn.dhs.org (change FOUR letter)
upload something before downloading, or your class C IP banned.
