I just commited a change to SuperBuild so you can now set the git URL of your choice.
In particular, you may want to use "kde:" instead of the default "git://".

So first git pull and update for superbuild repo.

Next, edit the GlobalSuperBuildOptions.cmake file and uncomment and modify the line
set(SB_GIT_URL "kde:" FORCE) 
as you desire

from here on, the cloning will use that url.

note that you can modify the url of existing repos... one way is by hand-editing the url line in .git/config
