Other than what is summarized in the bug report (https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1373 <https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1373>), I could not find what was discussed on the mailing lists, nor is there much information on the License-History.txt file (https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/blob/master/License-History.txt <https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/blob/master/License-History.txt>). As Warner pointed out, commit messages were kept almost verbatim from the original ones.
