Next time, please address me specifically on the email, it is purely
coincidence that I actually saw this message :)
No, we do not automatically get access to any LF services except what is
already called out in our charter. :-( It never hurts to ask, maybe it
will be free?
If not, I would recommend that the individual companies that use these
services as a part of their product testing, would hopefully push any
security fixes upstream.
