I've not checked it but this seems not to be true:

Will 8.10 include KDE 3?
8.10 will only include KDE 4 as its desktop. KDE 3 will not be
available. As the code-name suggests, Intrepid is intended as a
deliberately cutting edge release, if you would rather stay with what
you know 8.04 continues to be fully supported. The development team
decided that time and manpower considerations as well as the
probable(possible) lack of further 3.5x releases prevent them from
maintaining 2 separate versions, and KDE 4 was chosen as the version
to move forward with.

Believe me, that isn't true either. And as it was said in an earlier
thread (IIRC): Join the KDE-SIG, offer your help, raise your voice, get
participated (in a way you want to or being able to) and you will
finally see this for yourself.
