I believe a little explanation is in order here :)  When openSUSE Leap was 
released, the available kdepim was still Qt4 based and the Qt5 version was 
still worked on. 

Since that moment we have been updating Leap with the KDE Application releases 
and at this moment Leap offers both the Qt4 as the Qt5 version of kdepim.  As 
that this is a static distribution that can only be updated, we can not drop 
packages. This will happen with a newer release of openSUSE Leap.  Until that 
time both versions will co-exist, but only the Qt5 version will receive 

So openSUSE NEVER decided against shipping the KF5-based PIM, but it wasn't 
available at the time.  For openSUSE Tumbleweed, we "forced" the switch to the 
KF5-based PIM version with the KDE Applications 15.12.0 release.
