In my opinion, freezes in effect on stable branches are indefinite,
whether the branches are still maintained by upstream or not.  Perhaps a
good rule of thumb to follow here is to only backport patches from newer
*stable* branches like gnome-3-0, never directly from master.

Extended maintenance of older branches was discussed recently at
GNOME.Asia [1].  If you don't think there's consensus on the freeze
issue, it might be worth bringing this up on desktop-devel-list or
distributor-list, as I'm sure the topic is still fresh in people's
minds.
