I have now branched the same package to our Staging project using:

  $ osc -A pmbs branch openSUSE.org:KDE:Qt libqt4 Staging A_tw-libqt4

and enabled openSUSE_Tumbleweed as the only build architecture. Build
doesn't start and checking the package doesn't look good either:

  $ osc -A pmbs buildinfo Staging A_tw-libqt4 openSUSE_Tumbleweed x86_64
  <buildinfo project="Staging" repository="openSUSE_Tumbleweed" package="A_tw-libqt4" downloadurl="http://pmbs-api.links2linux.de:8080">

@Stefan, could this indicate some problems with the pmbs-api interface?

TIA, cheers.
