Ok, they have now been moved to Extragear libraries.

The git repositories themselves on do not move when you
move between playground, review and extragear. If you integrate into a
SC module which uses a monolithic approach, then some special work is
required to integrate the repository history. If it is a split module,
it is a similar change as for playground, review and extragear.

That change is adjusting a setting on KDE Projects (Called Subproject
Of), which at this time is only accessible by Sysadmins (due to a
limitation in Redmine groups unfortunately - it can't handle 2000+
members particularly well)
