About AGPL License

#1

Hi. I am writing because I am curious about mattermost server license
I am considering using the matermost open source.
But I saw the policy that if I modify the mattermost server source, I have to make public the source because of AGPL.

Here’s what I’d like to revise.

  • When user sign in, I’m going to add my company’s groupware api to mattermost sign in source.
  • And when user sign up, I’m going to authenticate with groupware API.

In this case, it’s inevitable to modify the mattermost server source.
if so, does the AGPL license apply? Or is a MIT license enough?
