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 ?
