Mark, it’s not a problem to build JavaHL. But as you said, to make it EPL
compatible Eclipse should replace Neon by Serf or remove DAV libraries
completely. It’s not a solution. In the first case proper functionality
isn’t guaranteed (you and Michael Pilato are sceptic regarding Serf). Nobody
would like to use SVN client, which is “different” and migh have problems.
In the second case, SVN should work without DAV protocol, which isn’t
acceptable by majority of people.
