OK, who decided to stick with a THREE YEAR OLD systemd in Leap 15.2,
and why?

Because it is the newest version that SUSE Engineers are providing
enterprise support for.

There are open bugs in that version that have been fixed TWO YEARS AGO.

As mentioned elsewhere in this thread most of those bugfixes should have
made there way into Leap either as part of the latest release or
maintenance updates. If you are encountering a bug in Leap 15.2 that has
been fixed upstream please open a bug in openSUSE's bugtracker and the
team will try there best to backport it.


While doing that just now i noticed that backporting that fix was
already requested and had been denied, see
https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1136674

It seems there is an alternate workaround available which sometimes
makes it less likely to backport a fix, especially a complex set of
changes such as this which involves changing a large number of things.
