It's a little more complex than that.  The CVSNT part of EVS is a client 
of the EVS API (as is the SVN part and the TFS part).  The API is a 
separate component (you can install the API without the CVSNT parts, 
although I don't think most people would bother).. so CVSNT remains GPL, 
the EVS API is LGPL to allow different licenses as required (and so that 
others can implement libraries on top of the API if they want to without 
worrying about licensing issues).

In general new code gets put under LGPL except our own extensions which 
are under a commercial license.
