Behdad: The main reason I didn't write to Google about it, was that I thought it would be a waste of time, since I couldn't find any Iranian student living abroad interested in the Summer of Code thing, and after reading the United States Treasury documents I believe that the regulations apply to students in Iran. Specially, the most capable person I was thinking about when I wrote that was you yourself, but since you told me that you will not apply for the program anyway, I saw no reason to contact Google about a lost cause. I'm happy that you are now applying and have solved the problem yourself.

About the Fedora EULA, I contacted Red Hat long before having an English weblog, and also tried to get the help of Novell lawyers through Luis. But the problem cannot be solved by seeing Google and Red Hat removing the wrong clauses: they will appear in other EULAs and FAQs (even possibly legally) if there is no general awareness on what the problem is. That's the reason I'm educating myself on all the background, and will ask FSF lawyers to help me in the cause.

I am going to polling offices now, to vote for Moeen. (BTW, none of your two Persian weblogs have anything recent on them yet about not voting, unless it's a third one I don't know about.)

Good luck with your application!
