Statement by The Apache Software Foundation regarding US Federal Register Notice of non-US affiliates added to Entity List Ruling
Open Source projects involving encryption software source code are still required to send a notice of the URL to BIS and NSA to satisfy the "publicly available" notice requirement in EAR § 742.15(b).
Open Source software, collaboration on Open Source code, attending open telephonic or in person meetings, and providing sponsorship funds are all activities that are not subject to the EAR and therefore should have no impact on our communities.
