Unfortunately Apache 2.0 is not compatible with the GPLv2 we use:
If you can overcome that somehow, then on the encryption side, first you must
check the encryption export laws of your own country. Then the encryption
export laws for the server hosting the patches, in this case the UK. I haven't
found any good information to indicate whether it definitely does or
definitely does not have any export control, sorry.
