Our best answers are easily found from http://lists.debian.org/search.html

  "First of all, I am not a laywer. So the following is not legal
  advice, but only what i know.

  I'm not aware of any ECCN that would cover an operating system as a
  whole. However, parts of Debian may be covered under ECCN
  5D002. However, those parts fall under the TSU licence exception, so
  no licence is required for that component. I'm not sure of any other
  applicable ECCN. Also note that the ECCN of a GNU/Linux distribution
  can vary depending on what components of it are exported. (Your GSM
  gateway presumably does not use every component of Debian

  Your safest bet would be to submit a classification request for the
  entire system to BIS, as described in the answer to question 3 at
  http://www.bis.doc.gov/Licensing/Do_I_NeedAnECCN.html "

Above text from Joe Smith in Message-id: <fb1p2d$njg$1@sea.gmane.org>

I thought debian is probably
Operating system software, development tools & compilers - 4D003.a
but I do not know whether anyone has exported it under that code.
Also, like Joe, I'm not a legal advisor, or any sort of official.

Please let us know if you get an official classification on that,
so we can add it to our web site.
