Summary0005545: Dependencies of python3-networkx 2.6.2
Description`dnf install python-networkx` installs 316 Packages, `dnf install python-networkx --setopt=install_weak_deps=False` doesn't have any other dependencies. I run into this trying to install `hyperkitty` and was curious where all those packages come from. I would expect that if I install a package via RPM, only stuff that is really required is installed.
Steps To ReproduceStart a Rocky9 and issue the command `dnf install python-networkx` vs `dnf install python-networkx --setopt=install_weak_deps=False`
TagsNo tags attached.

The dependencies that are appearing are considered weak dependencies as they're not "required" but they are either recommended or suggested by the package you're installing or another dependency of that package. You can see an example of what's recommended by using dnf repoquery -q python3-networkx --recommends

Closing as this is not a bug.
