Yup - and the people involved are aware of the relevant form to provide 
copyright to the ASF.  Having said that  this is one reason this would 
need to go through the incubator.

We've been through a lot of this with xml-security already, as we are 
implementing encryption functionality in those libraries.  So the 
thinking at the moment is the same requirements would be in place 
(notification of BIS etc.)

Given this is  "publically available" source code, the requirement for 
active checking on web sites is not active.  However, were we to 
directly send the code to a part of the world that is controlled, we 
would need to apply for an export permit.
