Thats exactly what I remembered, and I searched gmane for it.
This topic (emacswiki and license) came up when bzr was adopted
and the main document for transition was on emacswiki.

If this is the thread you are referring to, its 
the one starting with this message:

| From: Richard Stallman <rms <at> gnu.org>
| Subject: Bad choice of license in BzrForEmacsDevs
| Newsgroups: gmane.emacs.devel

| http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/BzrForEmacsDevs
| allows GPL version 2, but not the current version.
| This is not a good thing.  Would the author(s) please
| change it to allow future versions of the GNU GPL as well?
| The documentation we recommend to Emacs developers has to
| set a good example for licensing as well as have useful
| information.
| Are there other pages on emacswiki.org which have this problem?
