Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) for JRuby?

Hi All,

I’m reposting this under its own subject heading, because I think it
might
have been buried in a different thread. Does anyone know if JRuby has
been
assigned an Export Control Classification Number (ECCN)?

It’s pretty obvious from this thread:

http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/214467

that export control has been carefully considered, which is great.
Cross
referencing that with the terribly lawyery information from the Bureau
of
Industry and Security (http://www.bis.doc.gov/encryption/enc_faqs.htm),
it
appears that software doesn’t really need to go through a government
review
process unless it contains encryption, which it seems JRuby has been
very
careful about (thanks, by the way!). This led me to do a little more
digging, and I’ve discovered that software producers can self-classify
their product by following a set of rules to construct an ECCN (
http://www.bis.doc.gov/licensing/exportingbasics.htm).

My best guess is that JRuby is classified as 5D002. See
http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?c=ecfr&sid=c5cc9a1c749a6f225283bdfa124431d0&rgn=div9&view=text&node=15:2.1.3.4.45.0.1.3.87&idno=15,
and for a good laugh, read through the incomprehensible language on the
page, then scroll to the top and chuckle at the “Keeping America
Informed”
banner.

There’s a little more information about how each of the bytes in that
number originate at
http://www.bis.doc.gov/licensing/exportingbasics.htm.

Anyway, am I way off the mark here? Is anyone working on the project
aware
enough of this nonsense to confirm or deny my suspicion that the ECCN is
5D002?

Thanks, and sorry for constantly harassing this list about uninteresting
things like licensing and export restrictions. I swear this is my last
one!

P.S. Awesome that JRuby was just released under EPL. Bravo!
