Nope. 6.3 (RELENG_6_3) will be supported until at least 31 January 2010
while 6.4 (RELENG_6_4) and 6-STABLE (RELENG_6) will be supported until at
least 30 November 2010 by the Security team.
There are no more releases planned from the RELENG_6 branch, but that's not
the same as 'unsupported' -- patches and advisories will be issued until the
dates listed, and quite usually beyond that.
