OpenJDK is released under the GPL (with a linking exception), but on
their website [1] they have the following text:

> International Use Restrictions
> Due to limited intellectual property protection and enforcement in
> certain countries, the JDK source code may only be distributed to an
> authorized list of countries. You will not be able to access the
> source code if you are downloading from a country that is not on this
> list. We are continuously reviewing this list for addition of other
> countries.

Does this make OpenJDK non-distributable by restricting the
redistribution rights granted by the GPL?
