The phrase "free software" can be confusing, partly due to the "free
as in speech" versus "free as in beer" distinction in meaning, and due
to the "Free Software Foundation" and their espousal of GNU Public
License or "GPL" (which I use by preference, myself). I really think
it is safer to describe the Apache license, used by Subversion, as an
"open source" license, as described at
http://www.opensource.org/docs/osd .
