Re: Unrestricted Encryption Source Code Notification Commodity: Debian Source Code

Dear Sir/Madam,

     Pursuant to paragraph (e)(1) of Part 740.13 of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations ("EAR", 15 CFR Part 730 et seq.), we are providing this written notification of the Internet location of the unrestricted, publicly available Source Code of packages in the Debian operating system. Debian is a free operating system developed by a group of individuals, coordinated by the non-profit Software in the Public Interest. This archive is updated from time to time, but its location is constant. At present, the software listed in this notification does not include cryptographic functionality, however we expect cryptographic functionality to be added to much of it in future. Therefore this notification serves as a one-time notification for subsequent updates that may occur in the future to software covered by this notification. Such updates may add or enhance cryptographic functionality of the Debian operating system. Additional notifications will be submitted as new components are added to the Debian operating system. The Internet location for the Debian Source Code is: http://ftp.debian.org/debian/

This site is mirrored to a number of other sites located both within and outside the United States.

Descriptions of the contents of the Debian archive are attached.

Further information about the Debian project is available at http://www.debian.org/

If you have any questions, please contact Ben Collins, via email at xxx@xxx, or telephone on (XXX) XXX-XXXX.


     Sincerely,
        Ben Collins (Project Leader)
        and Anthony Towns (Release Manager)
        for the Debian Project
