I don't think that is accurate.  To the best of my knowledge, Intel commits all bug fixes to the public Lustre git repo.  They just don't tag an official 7.1 release or do QA testing for a public 7.1 release.

You should be able to get bug fixes by cherry picking the appropriate git commits. (It might not be the easiest thing do, but I think all the code is public and available.)

Someone else can correct me if I am wrong.
