The community as a whole is not focusing exclusively on Artemis.  Some
people work on Artemis, some people work in 5.x.  Many people hope and
expect that at some point, Artemis will take over as ActiveMQ 6.x (whether
it's called that or not), and the 5.x codebase would then be left behind,
but it's not a given that it will happen and even assuming it does, there's
no explicit timeframe for the transition.  Until that point, 5.x remains
under active development and support.

>From what I've seen, the Artemis developers are generally very quick about
responding to posts on the mailing list, and seem to implement fixes
quickly when those posts result in a bug report.  (Kudos.)

5.x posts are also responded to, but more of them go unanswered (because
those of us who monitor the list don't always know everything about all
topics) and there is sometimes a longer delay before a response.  Those
things are partly due to who's available to monitor the list (and how much
time we can donate to that effort) and partly due to the fact that there
are currently far more 5.x questions than Artemis questions.  5.x bugs are
fixed (you can look at the release notes of the just-released 5.13.4
incidental version for a sense of how much goes into a dot drop, and you
can look at the release notes for a 5.x.0 release for a sense of how many
things are fixed in a minor version), and as you'd probably expect, the
ones that are better-written and/or hit a more-useful or
more-broadly-applicable issue generally get implemented faster than
poorly-written ones that add little value in niche use cases.  And for both
5.x and Artemis, your odds of a fix getting implemented quickly go up
substantially if you implement and submit the fix yourself along with the
JIRA bug.  We're both open-source projects, and we gladly accept
contributions, though bugs will still get fixed even if the respective
developers have to implement the fix themselves.
