- Go to maemo.org
- Introduce "wimax" in the search box.

You get by default 3 results under "maemo.org documentation". But this
is not what you are asking for. 

Change the selection in the dropdown menu to "Mail Archive"

- "Results 1 - 10 of about 33 for wimax."

Enjoy the reading.  :) 

The first public mention I remember was early on January:
