I don't know the official scoop.  But I saw this happen the other day 
too, and after poking around I discovered that the mirror I use (RIT) 
had the packages in an "archives" directory:

Server = http://mirror.rit.edu/kdemod/archive/kdemod-legacy/x86_64

That said, though, I think it's fair to say that you shouldn't count on 
these KDE3 packages being around - or working - for much longer. 
(Unless the Trinity project starts to make significant progress / 
traction soon.)
