That is very clearly Not OK.

However, I am puzzled by something.  AFAICT from github seafile-server
claims to be AGPL3-only.  You are talking about a licence conflict
with libzdb which is GPL3+.

But GPL3+ and AGPL3 are compatible.  So why did the seafile developers
feel the need to engage in this subterfuge ?
