The Liferay Faces team is currently working on JSR 378 which is a Portlet Bridge for Portlet 3.0 + JSF 2.2. The JSR for Portlet 3.0 + JSF 2.3 hasn't yet been filed.
Our customers are using Java EE 7 app servers which are not compatible with Mojarra 2.3. And since many app servers (including Oracle's own WebLogic Server) only support Java EE 7 right now, there is no way to upgrade to Mojarra 2.3.
We need to be able to provide bug fixes for Mojarra 2.2 for the sake of our customers who are using these standards based technologies.
Mojarra 1.2 and 2.1 only need security fixes, but Mojarra 2.2 is still widely used and depended on by many projects with no option to upgrade to Mojarra 2.3, so we need to be able to fix bugs and get regular releases for it.

We have a plan for how to support older releases but we're still
discussing the plan to make sure it's workable.
In general, we expect support to move to the Eclipse community and
the Eclipse Mojarra project. We're only contributing the current
release to Eclipse so support for older releases has to be handled
differently. At this point we only expect to be dealing with
critical security problems in older releases, which hopefully will
be relatively rare. If such a problem occurs, we can unarchive the
old github project temporarily while we fix the critical security
bug. For other issues, we hope the community will quickly move to
the Eclipse version.
Is Liferay distributing versions of Mojarra with Liferay products?

I guess I misunderstood your initial email. Are you saying the
the project is only archived temporarily (and oracle has yet to
decide how to handle legacy releases)? I thought that the
project was being permanently archived and that the Liferay
Faces team would have no way to contribute fixes for legacy
