He's mad because there are several functions in your patch that seem to
have originated in Neon (you even say that in the comments). You're
trying to contribute them to Subversion, which is licensed under a
BSDish type license and copyright CollabNet, where in Neon they are
under the LGPL and the copyright is held by Joe. You can't just take
code from an LGPL project and relicense it without asking permission
first, which is what you seem to have done. Just leaving comments in
the code that says "this originated in Neon" is not enough.
