So the .SP releases are a bit different to what other projects do.
In general all work except for embargoed security issues are pushed
upstream first, and these are also pushed upstream once the embargo is
lifted. This means that once the embargo is lifted and security patches are
pushed upstream the SP releases are a strict subset of the current upstream
The reason for this is that EAP does not want every commit, as it aims to
provide a very stable environment so the number of changes that go into a
release are limited to issues that actually affect EAP. For a commit to go
into EAP it also needs to be tested and verified by the Red Hat QE, and
they can only test so much.
That said I don't think there is any particular reason why we don't push
the tags after embargo has been lifted, mostly just that nobody has asked
for them. Really though there is no reason to use a SP release over the
latest community version, as the SP releases are based on the requirements
of EAP and not the community at large.

So the SP tags are not created in the open-source repositories as a rule?

Are you implying that RH is not releasing "SP" fixes in 2.0.X as
open-source in the normal repos?
If that is the case, I'd like to understand fully what is the policy for
releasing bug-fixes, security fixes and such. Is there any document that
explains such policy? I have built stuff that right now depends on 2.0.X,
as many others I guess, based in (wrong?) assumptions about the open-ness
of this project.
