If the first documented release is in Australia, and I just mirror an
archive, then I don't need to do anything.  But ftp.netrek.org is the
primary distribution site, so I need to let BXA know.  It's not a problem.
I have a template I use, so I'll notify BXA before each Vanilla release
I put on the ftp site.  You should probably add a notice to each Vanilla
release announcement with something like "This package contains
cryptoghic software.  Please be aware of the laws governing your country
regarding the use of crytography."
