Re: debmake

I couldnt help but notice that there are no Canadian or even American
(South or Central) mirrors of debian with the non-us category.  I have
been offered a T1 connect, but dont have any hardware.  If someone has a
spare machine capable of running linux, I can provide a Canadian mirror.
We dont have the same crypto restrictions you guys do.

One interesting note:  FreeBSD now distributes all crypto stuff *from the
US*.  OpenBSD does to, but doesnt count, since its Canadian.  Apparently,
the case got taken to court and FreeBSD won against the gov't.  Hence it
comes with Kerberos etc in full.  Does anyone know anything about this?
Does this mean we can do full crypto in debian without worrying about
piddly little American laws?
