Re: [PROPOSAL] Allowing crypto in the main archive

Okay, hopefully the final language change:

Proposal is to change section 2.1.5 of the Debian policy to say:

   Non-free programs with cryptographic program code must be stored on
   the "non-us" server because of export restrictions of the U.S.

   Programs which use patented algorithms that have a restrictied
   license must also be stored on "non-us", since that is located in a
   country where it is not allowed to patent algorithms.

   A package that depends on another package which is distributed via
   the non-us server must to be stored on the non-us server as well.
