Thanks for reminding me of this.  For those keeping track:

(qepHom 2018):  The object of this verb is the topic of the discussion.

Voragh, Ca'Non Master of the Klingons
    Please contribute relevant vocabulary or notes from the last
    year or two.

I can think of one obvious example from a few years ago:
rIch          talk about, discuss (v)

I think this word may have been requested because people wanted to add an object to ja'chuq and were forming sentences like *nab wIja'chuq, which is explicitly ungrammatical, perhaps trying to avoid ?nab maja'chuq.
