Updates for FOS OS components?

Does anyone know when Brocade intends to update the OSS parts of FOS?  I have security guys screaming at me to update OpenSSH, OpenSSL, and many other items.  I keep telling them that I can't dictate to Brocade what should be installed/updated.

Has anyone tried to update the components manually?  If so, any issues with getting support or voiding the warranty?

Is very simple.

If your have a Active Maintenance Contract, just need to open by Brocade a RFE.

Well, the switches I'm working with are Brocade 5000s but they were purchased through IBM and our service contract is through IBM.  Should I do this through IBM or Brocade?
