Changing of description over time?

Classification
ISO 639-3: 
tdt
I've been watching the evolution of this page for several years and editions now, and I would like more information about the changes I have seen it go through. I'm most interested in the progression from 'Portuguese-based creole' (14th edition), to 'Tetun-based creole' (15th edition), to omitting that description altogether, which seems to be the current preference. As someone with a keen interest in the politics of this language, I would really like to know if these changes are based on publications (that I can also access), or some other evidence. Thank you so much!!
