Could you point me to any page with the results of these discussions. I
seem to have missed it somehow.

We had a lot of face to face and phone discussions before the launch, but you won't find any trace of them (other than the memory of each participant).

Also, discussions with FSF were mostly by private email and phone, and were supposed to clarify our position vs proprietary extensions before FSF statement (we explained why we double license LGPLv3+ and MPL, as MPL is not the preferred FSF license).

By the way, we use the MPL license to suit the needs of companies like IBM who want to build a proprietary version of the software, although US corporations have a preference for Apache License which it is not copyleft (MPL is defined as weak copyleft).
