License of the svnClientAdapter

Hello Mark,
 
as you've already noticed I've spent some time on svnCleintAdapter over the
weekend.
Besides several bugfixes I also checked the licensing stuff there.
 
It seems that most of the files have copyright header with Apache 2.0
license.
Based on this assumption, I've updated our license.txt file with 2.0 text
too.
 
If you agree, you should then update the web home page where apache 1.1 is
mentioned as svnClientAdpaters license.
 
Other issue is that there is 1 file in sources and several test cases with
collabnet's license header.
Is it intentional ? Are they copyrighted that way ?
 
And one more, I'm not legal expert at all, but shouldn't we include thrid
party license files with their binaries ?
I mean JavaSVN, Jsch etc, jakarta-regexp ...
 
Regards,
Martin
 
P.S. It might be worth to check the "official" builds of svnClientAdapter in
Tigris' download folders.
The last one is pretty old and most of the older are realy obsolete now ...
I don't know whether we actually want to create standalone releases of
svnClientAdapter at all,
but even when not puting a fresh one there, I think it's worth removing the
very obsolete ones ...
