I've been using aCal for some time ( which
is a GPLv3 licensed application.

It's written by the author of DaviCal ( and does
a pretty good job of CalDav calendaring. It's not perfect - lacks a
couple of features and the UI is sometimes a bit questionable, but
generally it's good enough for my day-to-day usage.

It does also do CardDav, but only a one-way sync, with the Android
device only having a read-only view. 

Personally having integration into the stock calender application would
be nice, but I'll settle for add-on applications, if it makes it faster
to get to a free software client & server-side contacts and calendering
