Query on Subversion's use of Neon WebDAV library - mixing of Apache and LGPL libraries

Hi,

 

I'm working on a hobby application & I'd to use WebDAV.

 

I've read Lisa Dusseault's WebDAV book and this pointed me in the direction
of Neon, which in turn pointed me in the direction of SVN which pointed me
to Serf.

 

I'd like to be able to use a fully-featured WebDAV client side and possibly
server side library.

 

Neon was my initial choice, but since my app uses Apache/MIT licensed
libraries, I was concerned that the LGPL license of Neon would rule that
out, but then I noticed that SVN was using an Apache License but was using
Neon, although use of Neon was then depreciated in favour of Serf.

 

Some questions:

 

How was SVN able to use the Neon library without running into license
issues?

 

How does Serf stack up against Neon for WebDAV support? e.g. how well does
it interact and adhere to server modules provided by Apache's mod_dav and
Nginx's equivalent?

 

Regards,

 

John
