+<p>Since its inception, Subversion has a used a "modified Apache license".
+The migration of the project to the Apache Software Foundation provided
+an opprotunity to also change the license to the standard
+<a href="http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.html">Apache License,
+version 2.</a>  Additionally, the copyright to the collective work is now
+owned by the ASF.  While this has very little practical effect, it does mean
+consumers have one less license to worry about when deploying Subversion.</p>
