I've seen some similar confusion to this on Rocketchat as well.
FAB-33 was closed along with hundreds of other items in an overall cleanup of JIRA. Its closure does not indicate any mothballing or abandonment of BFT efforts, in fact, there's been considerably more activity in the space in the recent months; particularly there are some ongoing efforts to develop a golang BFT consensus library that is compatible with Fabric.
JIRA can be a good tool for tracking the progress of a designed, approved, and mid-implementation item, but it's the wrong place to look for future work. Future work is to be submitted and approved as an RFC https://github.com/hyperledger/fabric-rfcs/ so I would watch that space for updates.
