Subversion/Neon License question

From: Mark Phippard <markp_at_softlanding.com>

I had to fill out a document at work that just listed open source software
we were using along with the licenses. I was surprised when I looked up
the license for Neon to see that it is GPL. How is it that Subversion is
able to be licensed under an Apache-style license but use Neon which is
GPL, not even LGPL that I can see? I thought this was the classic case of
the GPL being viral and infecting other products?

I am not trying to stir up a hornets nest here and I do not know a lot
about these issues. This is mostly a curiosity question as most of the
other software associated with Subversion seems to be of an
Apache/BSD-style license which is more what I would expect.

Thanks

Mark
