There was a mailing list (rfc-design), and yes, it was preserved. But it
wasn't public, so the archives aren't either.

 From my recollection, there wasn't a lot of discussion on SVG itself,
as most of the team members were busy with different parts of the specs.

And then of course this all was supposed to be finished years earlier,
and a new iteration in the works already.
