We can access current privilege policies from https://stackoverflow.com/help/privileges. However, changes to the policies are not documented there. There has been at least one notable change - the requirement to access review queues was increased from 125 to 500 reputation. How can historical data on privileges be accessed?

    the privileges for review has been transfer from 125 reputation to minimum 500 reputation. This is the first change that I am aware of. Most other "changes" revolve around adding new privileges and not changing existing privileges. Jan 31, 2014 at 1:29

Internet Archive to the rescue!

(Note that "access review queues" wasn't a concrete privilege for a long time, and /review doesn't give much indication when you're not logged in (the Archive-bot isn't) - you'll need to find those elsewhere, e.g. on Meta.)
