ftp-master is (deliberately) located within the United States.
people.debian.org and vcs.debian.org are not.  If an American DD exports
software to Debian servers outside the US, that's their problem; if Debian
exports software by giving developers access to it from a server in the US,
that's a Debian problem.

Cf. "crypto-in-main".
