Oh wow. Looking at kde_projects.xml it seems it should be doable to figure 
which branches are available for each kde-projects module to allow for 
filtering out modules where a given branch is not present.

A workaround for now might be the recently-reintroduced "use-stable-kde" 
option. Despite what I have in the docs currently (not online but in 
index.docbook), it should work for individual modules or for module-sets, and 
should fallback to the master branch if a stable branch is not set for a given 
module. So it would still be pulled in, but at least it wouldn't be using a 
non-existent branch.
