Yes, that's correct. We don't install anything that comes from
git.kde.org, to entirely eliminate the possibility that system
binaries are used instead of binaries provided by the CI system

Yeah, that is an option. In some cases the list of Frameworks + Other
KDE packages (like ECM) makes sorting through such a list quite
In many cases it's faster to just install what CMake is reporting as missing.
