OH>  This works only Leap 15.4, which happens to have python39-devel.

In the Changelog of yt-dlp, it is written as follows;

     ### 2022.08.08

     * **Remove Python 3.6 support**

So, I tried to build yt-dlp with python 3.8, the I could get yt-dlp rpm.
That is, the build requirement is python 3.8 or higher.

I can't understand why packman requires python 3.9 or higher.

  1. I think python 3.9 is the development version


  2. The following repo has the stable version of python 3.10


   ↑__  I have not checked if all modules are available here.

I don't know the merit of upgrading to python 3.10 for the sake of
yt-dlp, but in general, I think there is merit in doing so as more
and more applications are being developed in python.

However, this is a troubling problem for regular releases such as
leap, isn't it?
