This section only applies to those who want to distribute SSL enabled
source or binaries from the US, and seems somewhat cryptic. I would
suggest instead that we remind users to check the laws and regulations
in their own countries, and perhaps give the URL for the US notification
Note that that isn't a typo; it really is "Nofify". This site contains
links to the full EAR regulations.
