As many people have said already, it seems to be pure marketing.

As Cedric Moullet said on Twitter [1]:
"ArcGIS Server Geoportal goes OpenSource. Just a joke, ArcGis Server is
required... it's again a marketing campaign useless for SDI !"

As Jeroen Ticheler said on Twitter [2]:
"Pure coincidence? ESRI Geoportal toolkit => open source & INSPIRE
GeoPortal requirement => open source. Don't forget to OSS the backend ;)"
