Reply to "discuss"

Hi, Apple,

@apple posted:

1. We discussed our new project yesterday.

We don't need "about" after "discuss".

But what about sentence 2?

2. What we discussed about our new project yesterday needs to be further developed.

Is this sentence  grammatical without "about"?

If not, why do you need "about" in sentence 2 ?

You need "about" in sentence (2) because you have a discussion about something. In sentence (2), the interrogative pronoun "what" stands for that "something."

2. What (i.e. The point (that)) we discussed about our new project yesterday needs to be further developed.
