What's up with the Meaning of MIT license?

This five years old post was recently migrated from SO to Programmers. Not that I complain, but regular migrations like that are blocked by system (see Disable migration for questions older than 60 days). What makes this question special to overrule this limitation?

I briefly checked recent posts at MSO and MSE and found nothing about this migration.


Question revision history at SO shows couple funny changes made recently:

FWIW it looks like a duplicate of MIT vs. BSD vs. Dual License to me.

  • seems a bit like left hand vs. right hand problem, Shog migrated to meta.P.SE where it got rejected and then Tim migrated to P.SE – ratchet freak Sep 3 '14 at 10:44

    @ratchetfreak yeah. Though I am most intrigued by why these guys decided to overrule 60-days limitation to migrate this question – gnat Sep 3 '14 at 10:46

    We've brought this question to the attention of the parties involved, but so far have had no feedback. – ChrisF Sep 3 '14 at 13:31
