Having a clean and reproduceable build environment is a *big*
If someone has a pre-4.15 rpm, then they can't upgrade to suse's
current packages. They also cannot build or install an rpm>=4.15,
so they can't get to the point of being able to use packages
built on OBS.
This is simply not true otherwise tumbleweed users wouldn't have been
able to upgrade similarly Leap users wouldn't be able to migrate to
tumbleweed (which they can) as Leap still has 4.14 which first came
around early 2018.
The gap isn't about me building rpm's on my machine for someone else's
machine, but is about me building rpm's for my machine. The problem
is that I can't build+install the current rpm to install on my system.
Unfortunately if you don't have rpm 4.14 or later on your machine its no
longer in a state we support and you really only have two options, 1.
use the upgrade function on the installation media, 2. The following
repo  contains multiple rpm packages, the highest version one will be
capable of installing rpm 4.14.1 from Leap 15.0  otherwise upgrades
wouldn't have been possible. From there you can update to the latest rpm
provided in Leap 15.2 and then onto rpm 4.16.0 which is now the version
in tumbleweed. From there you can reupdate everything or rebuild rpm
from source or whatever you would like. If you are unwilling to try
those things there isn't really anything we can do to further help you
with your issues.
