Calamares needs to be run as root, unfortunately (so that it can mangle disks and write essentially arbitrary files in the target filesystem). That is usually done through pkexec or sudo. In both cases, you need to take care to preserve enough of the environment that Calamares can find the theming. I'm not sure if pkexec -E is sufficient. In any case, by pointing enough XDG things to the home directory of the live user, rather than root, you can improve theming without doing any work on / in Calamares itself. Not resetting $HOME might be enough.
I think one of the goal of Calamares was to be distribution independent and DE independent (the universal installer). So I don't think using KDE design decision is a good idea, but making Calamares more themable would be cool ;)
Yeah, this is just a matter of styling. @adridg might be able to help with this.
Considering that most Calamares devs are KDE devs (https://calamares.io/about/), it might make sense to see if they're interested in having the default look of Calamares changed. Even if they aren't, Calamares supports custom styling, so there's no need to make a fork of the installer.

Not sure if that sort of application really needs to have regular commits ;)

Excitingly enough apt rdepends doesn't actually manage to generate a list for the virtual package qtbase-abi-5-9-5 so we need custom tooling to even get a list of offending packages -.-

I e-mailed kdeedu-i18n-doc
In point of fact, that's literally what the last build failure says
I think the only thing blocking this is the not set branch. what you describe are l10n data assets, those have literally no requirements other than knowing where to get them from (i.e. a branch)

seems good but needs to update to newer qt for the qt bits and to get into debian
let's ignore it then
This in fact only became active recently.
Current issue seem to be that digikam.mo translation doesn't get picked up by our stuff. Investigate why.
Also apply to 18.04. Needs investigation on how to actually pull in the upgrade. Possibly -desktop should recommend the HWE packages, but this may not be enough. So, check what is the least invasive but reliably upgrading approach here.
OMG they are finally all green.

At akademy 2019 we decided to just switch to HWE in future for all users
