    DebianThere should be a debian-non-crazy section in the style of debian-non-US which can hold all good software like lame, which is blocked by some big companies in some countries. Also this cold hold all the cryptographic stuff which also cannot distributed in fr. (non-FR, non-US, …)

    I think it’s not the package maintainer’s job to look where a package is releasable. Of course, it should be marked in the package. But developpers who are familiar with legal issues in their countries should tell maintainers that their package can’t be released there.

    This is what I was basically implying. It should basically go through the bug reporting system (file a bug about release for a particular geographical/legal area), which is then updated by the package maintainer. What I am saying though, is that it is the maintainers job to maintain the list, not to go out and find out (though it would be nice to make some sort of effort, at least initally).
    If such a system gets implmented, people who know that a package should not be shipped to the area should file a bug report to identify the package as such. If there is no timely release, then someone can do an NMU. If a dedicated team sits around checking the status of the packages, submitting bug reports, and doing NMU’s in the case of maintainers being too busy, so be it.
