Default need LEGAL answer for gst-entrans

I'm on the way to review gst-entrans
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=639518

This is a collection of plug-ins and tools for the GStreamer

It only requires liboil, but produce various plugins

/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstavidemux.so
/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstentrans.so
/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstmencoder.so
/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgsttranscode.so
/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvirtualdub.so
/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstyuv4mpeg.so

So, I must ask if there is any patent issue to include it in fedora
repository. I seems ok to me, but I'm not a expert in legal issue.

It doesn't implement any codecs.

Several of the wrapper plugins rely on external stuff like mjpegtools (mp2enc)
and y4m to do the work. Those are not provided by Fedora, however, so what is
their run-time behaviour if the needed requirements aren't installed?

It only implement borrowed "filters" from avidemux/mplayer/....

It seems nothing required at run-time.
