Someone noticed a couple of years ago that we did not have any export 
on RTEMS.  As I recall, the text is a merge of that from
and a few ftp sites.  Today, it appears to look most like the text from 

I just found a similar purpose but differently worded paragraph for  

But I recall that if you use "classic command line ftp", you get a 
similar message from many
popular ftp sites.  When you use Firefox to browse there, the login 
message may not get shown.

I am not a lawyer either but I recall we did do our homework to see what 
other free software
projects and sites did.  Then we got a legal review of our text.  As I 
read all of these disclaimers,
they are saying that the project complies with the laws of the  home 
country.  You agree not
to download it or redistribute it if either would violate some law. 

This is NOT legal advice for your situation.
