The new draft is a revision of the existing export control
regulations, which can be found easily from the page at:

You can find 734.3(b)(3) at the link for Part 734, available in ASCII,
PDF, or Word Perfect formats.  That's a great section actually, since it
describes what kinds of published information are *not* subject to the
EAR (the Export Administration Regulations) and are thus freely exportable.

There's more general info about crypto export controls if you go to

which is the Bureau of Export Administration main page.  Click on 
"Encryption" in the left margin.
