This to me was a rather startling discovery, finding a new basesystem package
being installed into a release only a few months from support termination. Was
doing this in 15.0 an oversight?

I'm not aware of any.
I found out that the libyui-ncurses package depends on
the glibc-locale .
It was added ~6 years ago  to fix a problem with empty UI (no texts
Maybe we could change that to glibc-locale-base,
I'm not sure. Could you test it if
YaST works in the text mode with only glibc-locale-base?
## 15.0 host p5bse
# rpm -e --nodeps --noscripts glibc-locale
Seems fine to me, including reaching the Languages screen.
What if you use a locale
which is not present? Does it still work?
Someone familiar with using something other than English should try this. All I
have any familiarity with are en_US, en_DK (Mozilla only, for ISO-8601 date/time)
