I don't understand your point.
What do you want me to change?

you can see them when you start liquidshell.

Where, which and how would I need to add SPDX identifiers ?
Where is this documented in KDE guidelines ?
I don't find anything.

Not sure I understand.
The cmake file includes
find_package(KF5 REQUIRED COMPONENTS
for NetworkManagerQt and BluezQt

What do you mean ?
There is exactly one shellscript which is not build related:
it contains #!/bin/bash
if you're referring to this.
I did this since I remember having read that /bin/sh is not the correct way.

"my workflow" - of course.
"exactly his computer" - not so.
E.g. it seems Arch Linux provides liquidshell: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/liquidshell-git/
Also KaOS have included liquidshell https://linuxscoop.com/video/whats-new-kaos-2018-01
I'm using openSuse.

If you find liquidshell too limited and unflexible for you, don't use it.
liquidshell's intent is exactly being this: simple and not over complex (aka general, flexible)
