Dear Debian Project,

My name is Harry Nakayama worked w/ TOSHIBA TEC Corporation in Japan.

But we cannot made it so far.

So, we need your support/help in this regards.
Would you please tell me if you have ECCN and CCATS number already?
If you don't have it, pls be advice how we can handle or judge Debian OS
export control.

We really appreciate your early reply.

Best Regards,

Harry

The answer I gave last time this came up should be findable with
Google, but if not, it is here:

http://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2009/08/msg00359.html

No idea if we have a CCATS number though.

BTW, if you are shipping hardware containing Debian, please register a
wiki account and edit this wiki page:

http://wiki.debian.org/Hardware/ShippingWithDebian

Debian can always use more developers and donations, so if you are
using/selling Debian and are able to, please dedicate some resources
to Debian or to the annual Debian conference:

Have you read "http://www.bis.doc.gov/licensing/do_i_needaneccn.html"?

We are volunteer organization for software.  We can not be made liable
for judging such legal matter.  Thus 2nd option is not for you as I
understand.

Although it sounds harsh, the best thing to do is judge by eading
corresponding regulations.  That is what most companies do for exporting
anything these days.  Company such as yours should have department
taking care such matters.

Any advice or suggestion provided here should be considered as
"reference opinion" and no gurantee.  After all, Debian is provided as
is.  Unlike commercial vender of software, we are not selling software.

PS: It will be nice to have some page for these issues on our web so
these FAQ can be addressed properly without making us liable.

If we put this to www.debian.org with wml, it will :-)

But tougher thing is to come up with the main text.

time-based release freezes

Hello Debianteam,

I hope you understand my terrible english ;)

It is the fixed release cycles, my opinion ist that 2years are too short, because Debian is used more as a
server operating system, the people how would like an actuelly version of an program can use Debian testing.

I would make every 3years a feature freeze and every 1.5 years a "stable-and-a-half", then the topicality
also ensures version of Debian (kernel, Xorg, etc).

The old stable, must be supported for 6years, has been published until the new version(testing to stable)

I hope I could possibly give one food for thought ;)

Gruss Stefan

in german:

Hallo Debianteam,

ich hoffe ihr versteht mein schlechtes englisch ;)

Es geht um die festen release zyklen, ich finde 2jahre viel zu kurz, da Debian eher als Server
betriebssystem benutzt wird, die leute die aktuelle programmverionen nutzen möchten, können ja
Debian-testing nutzen

Ich würde alle 3jahre ein featurefreeze machen und alle 1,5jahre ein "stable-and-a-half", dann ist auch
die aktualität von Debian gewährleistet (kernel, Xorg, etc) 

Die alte stable version, sollte dann auch noch die komplette stable-version gepflegt werden, so das
odlstable insgesamt 6jahre (seit release) gepflegt wird.

Ich hoffe ich konnte eventuell einen denkanstoß geben ;)

Gruss Stefan

Hi Stefan,

I have no comment on your proposal - it just amused me that you seem to
have included "I hope you understand my terrible english" in the German
version :-)

Cheers,

	David.

But Debian is not only for servers.

Not well-tested enough for normal use by non-technical people.
At the moment I believe more in backports.
(I am sysadmin for both Debian desktops and servers)

It would be nice to have a long support, but it is a lot of work.
Is it really such a problem to upgrade your servers?

Or is the real problem that your organisation or your customers do not
understand that an upgrade is important?

For me it is a problem that the support on the Mozilla products is so
short....
