Before we start a caveat. We are trying to interpret this in good faith but we are not lawyers so therefore any discussion or interpretation of license agreements you should check out with your lawyers. This is not legal advice!
However we also believe in a solid, production quality and viable JBoss community release which is as close to EAP as possible so that customers could put community into production and easily transition to EAP without a complete regression test of their application. Too many times we have seen customers with community in production that just can't transition to EAP rapidly due to the differences and therefore the impact on their application. Hence there has been concern in the community about the lack of a JBoss community release after 7.1.1see (https://community.jboss.org/thread/197780?start=0&tstart=0). So I believe this announcement has been made to assuage this concern.
