[CentOS-mirror] New public mirror IR

I state my personal opinion now (I am not representing CentOS or any other

CentOS contains encryption software that is illegal to use and distribute in
Iran, without having a license by a government-agency of Iran. Distributing
it freely on an ftp-server means you (may) get in trouble there.

CentOS contains software that is illegal to export to Iran, by all north
american and EU governments. Though I do not like it, here in Germany it is
also illegal to export anything to Iran. 

Speaking frankly: I do not care who downloads or synchronizes from our
mirror; but listing it publicly on the Mirror-page that we take part in
exporting encryption software to T7-countries or places with that my country
has a full export-embargo is another story. That could raise a big
discussion in our company-group resulting in bad publicity for CentOS and
us. I like my job and would like to keep it.

mit freundlichen Grüßen / best regards

Thanks for the mirror offering.
Let me come back later with an answer for that proposal.
