This query is best directed at the debian-user mailing list.

Nobody was willing to maintain KDE3 separately from KDE4 in Debian. The
volunteers in Debian wanted to work on KDE4.

It was discussed within Debian - the result was that nobody was willing
and able to do the work to maintain KDE3/Trinity. It's a lot of work.

apt-get source
dpkg-buildpackage

or use apt-build.

Please direct questions to the debian-user list. Release is not the
right forum for this discussion.
