Yes, it was talked about in detail in the discussions that Andrew,

heavyweight.

But control of the trademark was the specific issue here.

The two really go hand-in-hand.  Once the "heavier" process was eliminated we 
started from where Hudson was and started adding small things, like code reviews, etc.  
IMO, it did not really change the structure or security much, and especially not enough 
for us to feel good about giving away IP.  The Eclipse Foundation is a known entity 
with very high standards and well-defined processes and structure.  It is an 
environment that we feel comfortable contributing the code and IP into.  Just assigning 
away the IP into the world and continuing with a few more tweaks to the original Hudson 
process didn't provide that same level of assurance.  I am not trying to open up a 
debate on what could have happened.  I don't think what would be productive.  I am just 
trying to provide some background to answer your question.  I hope this does that.

I think understanding the history would be productive if it helped prevent similar disasters in the future and the FAQ doesn't provide enough information for that. I don't recall any 'hand-in-hand' discussion about circumstances in which the trademark ownership would be transferred - or that it was mentioned as a possibility at all.
