      This is a clone of issue OCPBUGS-31699. The following is the description of the original issue:

      Description of problem:

      gstreamer1 package (and its plugins) include certain video/audio codecs, which create licensing concerns for our Partners, who embed our solutions (OCP) and deliver it to their end customers. 
      ose-network-tools container image (seems applicable for all OCP releases) includes dependency to gstreamer1 rpm (and its plugin rpms, like gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free). The request is re-consider this dependency and if possible totally remove it. It is a blocking issue which prevents our partners to deliver their solution on the field.
      It is an indirect dependency. ose-network-tools includes wireshark, wireshark has dependency to qt5-multimedia, which in turn includes dependency to gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free. 
      First question: is wireshark really needed for network-tools? Wireshirk is a GUI tool, so dependency is not clear. 
      Second question: would wireshark-cli be sufficient for needed purposes instead? Because CLI version does not contain dependency to qt5 and so on.

      Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

          Seems applicable to all active OCP releases.
