Well, since those packages are all available via PyPi as wheels there is 
the alternative of

$ python3.10 -m venv [dir]
$ [dir]/bin/pip install yt-dlp
$ [dir]/bin/yt-dlp [whatever you want to do]

Subbing of course whatever updated version of Python is available on 
15.3 that you have installed, as well as having installed 
python310-virtualenv (or whatever version).

You do waste some space on those duplicated packages from above (it is 
about 56M for me, but on Tumbleweed), and you have to keep things 
updated via pip in that venv, so there are drawbacks. But this is 
probably the easiest option if no one is going to build those packages 
for Leap.
