I ordered a Beagleboard xM from Digikey but they refused to ship it
citing export policy. Perhaps a note on http://beagleboard.org to warn
off other unwary users will be helpful.
Funny thing is, I can get Beagleboard xM in Malaysia from Farnell
(http://my.farnell.com order code 1823269) without fuss.
The US government exports F/A 18 fighter-bombers to Malaysia. Intel,
Motorola(now Freescale) , and Altera have substantial CPU assembly
operations in Malaysia, so I am one puzzled Digikey former custom
Please see enclosed Digikey rejection below.

Thank you for your order with Digi-Key! We apologize, however the
products (1 pieces of part number 296-25798-ND) are currently under
review with our export management and at this time cannot be
exported. Unfortunately we do not have a date at this time when and
if they can be exported. Would you like to continue to wait for the
product, or would you like to cancel your order? Thanks.
