You can always fix your own bugs,  until FE goes EOL.  Which is  not as 
clearly defined as it should be.  I personally feel that extras should be EOL 
when legacy stops supporting the release. 

What is frozen  now is new Branches for FE-4 if  you have a package and have 
some need for it to be in FE-3 or FE-4  then you need to ask FESCo for 
permission to have the branch created.  All this means  is there should be no 
new FE-4 Branches for anything.  but otherwise  you are free to maintain your 
packages.  FE-4  has joined FE-3  in maintenance mode
