Please consider publishing an Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) for the jython package. To figure out the right ECCN for a software library, basically you have to read the Commerce Control List (CCL) (Supplement No. 1 to Part 774 of the EAR) and try to figure out where the software best fits. 

Jython provides cryptographic services, which is a feature subject to export control. Hopefully this feature falls under the technology software - unrestricted exception for encryption software that is publicly available, as discussed here:

This page about encryption software may be helpful:

It may be worth examining statements made by other open-source projects that provide encryption features.  For example, Apache Hadoop has classified itself as 5D002. 

Thanks for considering it.
