The case is that Subversion itself is breaking Neon's LGLP, isn't it?
http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/lgpl.html

5. ... However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the
   Library creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library
   (because it contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work
   that uses the library". The executable is therefore covered by this
   License. Section 6 states terms for distribution of such
   executables. ...

6. ... If the work during execution displays copyright notices, you
   must include the copyright notice for the Library among them, as
   well as a reference directing the user to the copy of this
   License. Also, you must do one of these things: ...

Similar thing happens with OpenSSL:
http://www.openssl.org/source/license.html

 * 6. Redistributions of any form whatsoever must retain the following
 * acknowledgment:
 * "This product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project
 * for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit (http://www.openssl.org/)"

But I don't know hows resposibility is it to produce that, should there be a
hook in the neon, which will print that out, if neon is compiled with
OpenSSL?

svn --version
svn, version 1.2.0 (dev build)
   compiled Oct 18 2004, 06:54:11

Copyright (C) 2000-2004 CollabNet.
Subversion is open source software, see http://subversion.tigris.org/
This product includes software developed by CollabNet (http://www.Collab.Net/).

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV)
  protocol.
  - handles 'http' schema
  - handles 'https' schema
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' schema
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network
  protocol.
  - handles 'svn' schema

I think this should be fixed, because we are using our own advertise
clause in the CollabNet license, and we are printing it with
svn --version.

BR, Jani
