Python packages are not libraries, which you could "symlink". The
problem is that the egg-info for watchdog (correctly) says that it is at
"Version: 2.1.1", but spyder says in it's egg-info/requires.txt and a
couple of more places that it needs <2.0.0. The Spyder devs really like
their pinning, whether it is necessary or not [1, 2, 3]. And they are
really adamant about enforcing it. So thanks for keeping this on distro
level and not annoying them by openSUSE quirks.
Even worse, I missed that sypder 5.0.3 also requires spyder-kernels >=
Fixed in sr#894844 
Thanks for the prompt response and explanation. Very much appreciated.
