There are 6 countries that Fedora cannot be legally exported to (as a
result of US export restrictions):

Cuba, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Sudan and Syria

These are known as the "T-6" countries. No individual associated with
the Fedora project (or mirror site) should provide Fedora software to
anyone in those countries, even if they are not in the US.

Here's the full legal paragraph:

"Because Fedora software contains encryption technology, Fedora software
and technical information is subject to the U.S. Export Administration
Regulations and other U.S. and foreign law, and may not be exported or
re-exported to certain countries (currently Cuba, Iran, Iraq, North
Korea, Sudan and Syria) or to persons or entities prohibited from
receiving U.S. exports (including those (a) on the Bureau of Industry
and Security Denied Parties List or Entity List, (b) on the Office of
Foreign Assets Control list of Specially Designated Nationals and
Blocked Persons, and (c) involved with missile technology or nuclear,
chemical or biological weapons). You may not download Fedora software or
technical information if you are located in one of these countries, or
otherwise affected by these restrictions. You may not provide Fedora
software or technical information to individuals or entities located in
one of these countries or otherwise affected by these restrictions. You
are also responsible for compliance with foreign law requirements
applicable to the import and use of Fedora software and technical
information."
